Dear Colleagues:

Thinking globally, building collaborations with other UF units and the Gainesville
community, improving avenues of communication, and serving as an integral part of the
academic mission at the University of Florida were focus areas for 2005 06. All Student
Affairs departments provide programs and services reflecting these focus areas in support of
the Division of Student Affairs Values Statement. The featured programs in this report are a
representative sample of the breadth and depth of staff efforts and bring attention to the full
range of activities and programs targeted to UF students.

During Spring 2006 and late Fall 2006, the Gator Nation celebrated two national
championships one in basketball and one in football. Division of Student Affairs
administrators and student leaders joined with representatives from the University Athletic
Association, UF Police Department, UF Transportation Services, UF University Relations,
the Gainesville Community, and local law enforcement among others to plan inclusive
community celebrations that were memorable, exciting, appropriate, and safe for all.
I credit the success of these celebrations this year to established collaborations between
UF departments as well as between UF and the Gainesville community and to previously
established traditions and standards of behavior set by our community in regards to these
celebrations. I am proud of our students and the involved administrators. We can all look
forward to future similar collaborations and celebrations!

UF Student Affairs professionals are recognized as national leaders in their fields and
continue to bring innovative programs and services to our campus of over 50,000 students.
On pages 15-16 is a representative sample of staff accomplishments for this time period.

I hope you enjoy reading the 2005 2006 Annual Report of the Division of Student Affairs.

Florida Opportunity Scholars Program

Students who excel academically at the high school level deserve every opportunity
The ancient Greek definition of to attend and be successful at UF The Florida Opportunity Scholars (FOS)
happiness was the full use of Program, coordinated by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and
Student Financial Affairs, is an initiative for first-generation-in-college students
your powers along lines of from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. FOS recipients are guaranteed the
excellence. resources to succeed academically without being overwhelmed by college costs
JOHN F KENNEDY such as books, fees, meals, housing, transportation, and other miscellaneous
expenses. The goal of the program is to retain these students and have them
graduate at rates at least equal to the undergraduate population at large.

Research and planning for the program occurred during 2005-2006, and the
program launched in Summer 2006 with 207 students. By Fall 2006, 445 Florida
Opportunity Scholars had been identified. The University Athletic Association
donated $1.1 million to help launch the program at UF The first cohort was a
diverse group that represented all races; 66% were women and 34% were men.
The average family income was $24,280. The average financial need was $13,799,
and the average Florida Opportunity Scholars Program award was $4,289.

First-generation-in-college students have unique needs and challenges. The Florida
Opportunity Scholars Program includes a number of support strategies to ensure
academic success, engagement at UF, social interaction, and a sense of belonging
to the UF community. These strategies are coordinated by Student Affairs staff
and include providing financial aid packages that ensure that qualified students
complete their undergraduate education debt-free; scheduling receptions with
President Machen and other state and campus leaders; providing a one-half day
orientation; encouraging participation in "First-Year Florida: SLS 1102, "a
semester-long one-credit course; and other counseling and support interventions
related to academics and campus life.

The Florida Opportunity Scholars Program continues to grow. A development
campaign was launched to provide for future increased costs as new recipients
are selected for each freshman class. The Florida Legislature supports the program
throughout the state through the Florida's First Generation Matching Grant
Program. Contributions at each state university in support of this program are
matched dollar-for-dollar by the state. So far, $6.5 million has been dedicated to
the 11 Florida universities in support of this program.


Reitz Scholars

The Reitz Scholars Program recognizes and encourages academic achievement,
leadership, and service among UF undergraduate students. The program is named in
honor of Dr. J. Wayne Reitz, President of UF from 1955-67, and is coordinated by the
Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. Each spring, 30 students are selected
by a faculty/staff committee from more than 90 candidates. Emphasis is placed on
identifying students from a broad spectrum of university life, including academic,
political, religious, recreational, and service organizations. Scholarships are renewable
annually for up to three years.

Each Reitz Scholar is assigned a faculty or administrator mentor. Programs and service
projects are planned throughout the year to encourage collaboration among the scholars
and the groups they lead. These programs and projects also expose participants to
university leadership, increase understanding of UF infrastructure, and provide a
support mechanism of faculty/staff and peers. Reitz Scholars are expected to maintain
high levels of academic achievement and community service while serving as student
leaders. The expectation is that they will role model the highest levels of student
leadership at UE


BRIDGE (Building Relationships through Internship Development with Gainesville
Employers) provides local, career-related internships exclusively for UF students and
supports the University's efforts of maintaining successful town-gown relationships with
the Gainesville community. Established in 2002 as a joint venture between the Career
Resource Center and the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, BRIDGE sets out to
equip students with practical career experiences that would help them transition into
secure and successful long-term employment. The program has evolved each year with
increased student and employer participation. During the 2005-06 academic year, UF
students had the opportunity to take advantage of a total of 145 internships through the
BRIDGE program and more than 700 resumes were received by employers. Among
many advantages of the program, employers secure additional assistance with important
projects and assignments while also gaining exposure to the new generation of young
leaders and potential full-time employees. In turn, students enhance their academic
foundation with meaningful, real-world experience, thereby making the program a
win-win for both students and employers! This partnership bridges students and
participating local employers, ultimately facilitating greater connectivity between
Gainesville-area professionals and UF students.

Management is doing

things right; leadership is

doing the right things.


How wonderful it is that

nobody need wait a single

moment before starting to

improve the world.

First-Year Florida

Imagination is more important

than knowledge. For knowledge

is limited to all we now

know and understand, while

imagination embraces the entire

world, and all there ever will

be to know and understand.

The first year in college is a significant period in the development of academic,
social, emotional, and intellectual life skills. First-Year Florida: SLS1102 is a
one credit, one hour per week course packed with tips, tricks, and tactics
necessary for survival on the UF campus. The course is also an opportunity
for students to be introduced to a variety of experiences that encourage
self-discovery and life exploration. The curriculum is designed to empower
students to have more rewarding first-year experiences that lead to taking
responsibility for their educational journeys. First-Year Florida is coordinated
by the Office of the Dean of Students.

In 2005 2006, 23% of first-year students enrolled in First-Year Florida (1,679
students). Students registered for a general section of the course or for one of the
population-specific sections: College of Agricultural and Life Sciences; Warrington
College of Business; College of Fine Arts; College of Nursing; Career Exploration;
Leader Scholar Program; Honors Program; Exploratory; Pre-health; and Pre-law.

The First-Year Florida curriculum assists students in their transition to UF,
emphasizes the development of skills that support success in college and beyond,
and familiarizes students with UF resources. First-Year Florida educates new
students to maximize their learning and growth by creating environments that
provide opportunities for engagement with UF faculty/staff, upper division mentors,
fellow students; by offering diversity experiences that promote awareness and
respect; by sponsoring involvement activities; by providing resources; by
encouraging the active engagement in one's own learning; by exploring healthy
lifestyle choices; and through discussions of UF expectations. Activities include
group projects, service learning experiences, diversity activities, various guest
speakers from departments ranging from the Career Resource Center to Study
Abroad, interviews with faculty members, appointments with academic advisers,
and attendance at University events such as Gatorfest, the Student Organization
Fair, and library orientations.

In 2005 2006, 92 undergraduate students and 68 faculty and staff
volunteered to serve as First-Year Florida Peer Leaders and Instructors.
The paired Teaching Teams served as advisers, resources, role models, and
representatives of the University of Florida.

Reitz Union Board (RUB)

The J. Wayne Reitz Union presents many programs and services designed to foster
respect for others. Two examples that highlight this value are the weekly film
series and the weekly late-night entertainment program Gator Nights!. Both
programs are presented by the Reitz Union Board (RUB), the student-run
programming organization of the Reitz Union.

RUB consists of five committees of volunteer students who plan and present
a variety of cultural, social, and educational events for University of Florida
students and members of the university community. In addition to recruiting
a diverse group of students to serve on the board, this organization actively
co-sponsors films, lectures, comedians, and live musical performances with
multiple campus student organizations in order to present a diverse array
of entertaining cultural experiences.

The RUB film committee presents films five nights per week and regularly
sponsors films for various cultural celebrations such as Asian Kaleidoscope,
Hispanic Heritage Month, and Black History Month. Films are intentionally
selected from a variety of genres that will appeal to a wide range of students. Of
the 58 titles shown in 2005-2006, almost one-half were concerned with or related
to diverse populations, and one-third were co-sponsorships with minority student
organizations. These films promoted respect for others by increasing students'
awareness of cultures and values that are different from their own. Popular titles
such as Hotel Rwanda, Coach Carter and The Incredibles also attracted students
who may not otherwise attend diversity or culturally-related events.

Another major program of the Reitz Union Board is Gator Nights!, the late-night
program presented every Friday evening that includes free movies, free food, and
alcohol-free entertainment. This program regularly features events that teach
participants about other cultures, such as henna tattoos, salsa lessons, cultural New
Year celebrations, and a weekly International Coffeehouse. Many cultural student
organizations also co-sponsor events at Gator Nights! on a regular basis.

Creative programming through films, Gator Nights!, and other activities provides
an excellent opportunity for staff to expose students to new cultures and values
and foster a sense of respect for others by providing unique experiences through
quality entertainment.

During Fall 2005, exchange students from 18 different countries lived in the
International House. Students came from Europe, South America, Africa, and the
Pacific Rim. Multiple exchange students came from the United Kingdom, Brazil,
Denmark, France, Australia, and Japan. In contrast, most American UF students
living in residence halls are Florida residents. International exchange students tend to
be older students, usually over 21. In contrast, most American students living in the
International House are under 21. Most international students are on one- semester

Recreational Sports Challenge Course

Communication is transmitting ideas through the exchange of thoughts,
messages, or information by speech, signals, writing, or behavior. Practicing ..
various forms of communication allows individuals to build interpersonal
rapport with others and allows groups to bond and develop further.

One of the many opportunities within Student Affairs for students to
practice communication skills is the Challenge Course managed by the
Department of Recreational Sports. In 2006, the Challenge Course served
over 1,200 participants. The Challenge Course is an outdoor personal
development and teambuilding activity that consists of low elements and an
Alpine Climbing Tower. Low elements take place on, or a few feet above,
the ground. The Alpine Climbing Tower is constructed of utility poles and
requires a belay for safety. Facilitators set up scenarios to challenge small Who speaks, sows.
groups to critically think and develop group dynamics. Through
participating in problem-solving initiatives on the course, groups utilize all Who listens, reaps.
types of communication strategies to accomplish their goals.
The Challenge Course program is designed for student groups of 12 or
more who would like a unique approach to building group communication
skills and group cohesion. Groups consisting of new members are in the
forming stage of group development. On the Challenge Course, members
of these types of groups can learn how to interact with one another and
develop group and communication norms. Groups consisting of members
who know each other come to the challenge course to develop better
communication processes. Interested groups may contact the Department
of Recreational Sports to schedule a challenge course opportunity including
discussing and planning for group development outcomes.

Group Counseling Program
He who has health has hope, and Group Counseling Program

he who has hope has everything. The Counseling Center offers a variety of counseling groups to enhance the interpersonal
ARABIAN PROVERB health of students during the important psychosocial developmental years of late
adolescence/young adulthood. Over the past few years, an increasing number of students have
been involved in the program, with participation up a remarkable 34% and 30% respectively
for each of the past two years.

Groups typically include 6-10 people who meet weekly with one or two counselors. Students
talk about what is concerning them most and/or what they have identified as personal growth
factors. Members listen to each other and openly provide each other with feedback. These
interactions give members an opportunity to increase understanding, try out new ways of
being with others, and learn more about the ways they interact in their everyday lives. The aim
is to facilitate respect for others and promote good citizenship as students matriculate. The
groups occur in a confidential setting in a safe atmosphere that maximizes personal exploration.

There are approximately 30 group offerings available per year. The Understanding
Self& Others group is offered four days per week to accommodate student schedules.
Once per semester, over the course of a weekend (20+ hours), an intensive Understanding
Self& Others group is offered for students, providing a therapeutic encounter towards
personal growth and change. At least one skills-building, meditation-based group,
Taming the Anxious Mind, is offered each semester for students wanting assistance in anxiety
and stress management.

The Counseling Center offers some noteworthy groups in support of the university's academic
mission. Most particularly, for over 20 years, the Center has successfully filled Math Confidence
groups that assist students in overcoming psychological blocks that have created math anxiety
and avoidance. More recently, a group for first-generation college students has been formed in
order to enhance retention and academic success.

Additionally, the Counseling Center offers groups specifically designed to serve
African-American, Hispanic, Asian, international and LGBT students. Another group
targets students experiencing difficulties with use of alcohol/other drugs. Counseling
Center faculty is constantly engaged in evaluation efforts in order to refine group services
so that they are consistent with student needs. We anticipate that the group program
will continue to grow as an important and popular counseling intervention facilitating
student health.

The Family Fund helps to support programs designed to assist student
learning, explore career possibilities, and integrate students into service and
leadership organizations. The Division of Student Affairs is committed to
helping students not only be contributing members of society but to be
leaders in a global community.

Each year during the fall semester, the Family Fund contacts the parents of
every undergraduate student at the University of Florida. Parents are asked to
consider donations to the UF Family Fund as financial investments in their
students as Student Affairs staff work to achieve the goal of "Educating
Leaders for a Global Community." Funds raised through the Family Fund
campaign allow the Division of Student Affairs to offer programs and services
that enhance the education of every student at the University of Florida.
