Executive Summary id="executive-summary"

Dean’s message

We had a great year at the UF Warrington College of Business! I’m very proud of what we’ve built because of our exceptional students, alumni, faculty and staff, as you’ll read in this report, but I’m even more energized about what lies ahead.

The UF initiative on AI and Analytics continues to transform curricula and research across the university and Warrington is at the forefront of that transformation. We have hired 10 new faculty in the past year focused on AI and Analytics across all areas of the College and we are infusing AI and Analytics in our graduate and undergraduate curricula so that all our students graduate with the skills needed in the 21st century workplace.

But a business school education involves so much more than just the classroom. Through a significant investment by the university and the generosity of our alumni, we are improving student outcomes with a renewed emphasis on professional and leadership development, co-curricular activities, communication skills, and career preparation, so that all our students start rewarding careers and achieve their full potential in life.

At the core of everything we do is our faculty. They do cutting-edge research that impacts society, publish in premier journals, hold leadership positions in prestigious academic societies, and excel in the classroom.

But I’m most proud of the exceptional education, access and value we provide to our students. With the lowest tuition among premier business schools, we have outstanding faculty, students, top-ranked programs and state-of-the-art facilities because of the commitment of our alumni. There is something special about the Gator Nation and I am so proud to be a part of the Gator Family.

Shaping the future of the College

The future of Warrington is being shaped by three important initiatives.

AI and analytics

In July 2020, UF announced a $70 million artificial intelligence initiative with NVIDIA, and Florida legislature provided $20 million in recurring annual funds to hire 100 new faculty. With access to HiPerGator, the most powerful supercomputer in higher education, UF is infusing AI across the curriculum of all colleges at UF.

An urban campus in South Florida

The University of Florida is in negotiations to open a graduate campus in West Palm Beach focused on technology and innovation. Made possible through philanthropic gifts and significant investments from the State of Florida, the City of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County, the new campus will include programs from the Colleges of Business, Engineering and Law that are highly interdisciplinary, experiential and focused on AI, Analytics and FinTech. Once approved by the Board of Governors and our accreditors, the campus will provide a platform to engage with the rapidly expanding business community and technology driven ecosystem in South Florida.

Diversity initiatives

Warrington has established dedicated administrative and staff positions and invested in programming to advance inclusion, diversity, equity and access in the College and among all stakeholders. To meet the needs of UF students, the employers who hire them and society, the College must attract, support and retain students, faculty, staff and volunteer board members from diverse backgrounds.

Warrington partners with UF Health Sciences to tackle bias

As our world continues to embrace artificial intelligence (AI) and the benefits it brings to society, we must also recognize its challenges. One challenge congruent across disciplines is recognizing the inherent bias introduced by data and algorithms when using AI technologies to solve problems.

Multiple colleges at UF with researchers, industry leaders and academics from around the world came together November 16-17 to share ideas about how to do just that at the 2021 DAISY Workshop.

DAISY is a partnership between the UF Warrington Management Department, the UF College of Medicine Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics and the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions Department of Epidemiology.
