It is a comprehensive, metropolitan university, which offers degree programs at the baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral levels. Initially established as an upper division and master’s degree-granting institution, UNF began offering classes in 1972 to a 2,000-member student body. In 1984, freshmen and sophomores were admitted. In 1990 the university opened a doctoral program in educational leadership and in 2007, UNF added a doctorate in nursing practice and a doctorate in physical therapy. Printable Catalogs Archived Catalogs Course Schedule Search: Search by Subject UNF remains one of the most selective comprehensive universities in America. In fall 2012, approximately 1 out of every 8 freshman applicants enrolled in the fall class. With a mean SAT score of 1213 and grade point average of 3.88, UNF’s 2012 fall freshman class reflected the university’s commitment to high-quality undergraduate education. The minimum scores typically expected for admission to a four-year university such as UNF are a sliding scale equivalent of 1000 on the Critical Reading and Mathematics parts of the SAT (or the ACT equivalent) and a GPA of 3.0. The university is committed to diversity with the belief that exposure to an extraordinary blend of students offers a rich and rewarding educational experience. Of the more than 16,320 students enrolled at UNF for the 2012 fall term, about 56 percent were women, just under 25 percent were minorities, and 89 percent were undergraduates.

Statement of Mission The University of North Florida fosters the intellectual and cultural growth and civic awareness of its students, preparing them to make significant contributions to their communities in the region and beyond.

These symbolize the University’s role in providing direction for students. The placement of the symbol in the upper northeast quadrant of the circle describes the University’s location in the northeast region of Florida. The Roman numerals MCMLXV refer to the year that the University was chartered, 1965. Use of the official University seal is reserved for official documents such as diplomas and other official certificates. Course Schedule Search: Search by Subject Search by Department Search Distance Learning Off-Campus Location Codes The UNF Logo The University’s graphic symbol is depicted at left. It consists of three elements. The initials UNF are referred to as the monogram. The words University of North Florida are referred to as the descriptor. The bird is the osprey image. The logo can appear with or without the descriptor. The osprey image should never be used alone. The logo appears on official University stationery, business cards, envelopes, Web pages and external publications. Blue and gray are the official UNF colors. Visual Identity Guidelines, which explain the proper use of the UNF logos, are available at the Department of Marketing and Publications, or can be found online. The Osprey Mascot The osprey was adopted officially as the University of North Florida mascot in November 1979 in an election conducted by the Student Government Association. The osprey received 47 percent of the votes and won over the armadillo, seagull, manatee and shark. Ospreys can often be seen gliding majestically over the campus. The osprey — a member of the hawk family with a wingspan of up to 6 feet — is capable of diving 80 mph in pursuit of fish, which constitute its main diet. UNF’s mascot has the characteristics that UNF students hope to have when they graduate. Ospreys have been described as seemingly inexhaustible, tenacious, opportunistic, cosmopolitan, loyal to their species, adaptable, resilient and fond of living near other ospreys. Described as “trendy birds” in National Geographic magazine for their success in adapting to suburban neighborhoods, ospreys also are into recycling. Children’s toys, plastic foam containers, cork buoys and doormats are some of the items they use to construct their gigantic nests. Ospreys, like UNF alumni, reside on all continents, except Antarctica. To commemorate UNF’s commitment to the environment and its adoption of the osprey as its mascot, the University of North Florida Foundation Inc. commissioned a watercolor painting of the osprey by noted ornithologist and wildlife artist Frederick William Wetzel of Jacksonville. The painting hangs permanently in the special collections of the Thomas G. Carpenter Library. The Student Creed I AM THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH FLORIDA. I am loyal to the Nest without reservation. I am selfless in my effort to advance its values. I am relentless in the pursuit of truth and knowledge carried out in the spirit of intellectual and artistic freedom. I am one who wears the colors of the Osprey proudly. I am wearing them on my chest and in my heart, on and off the playing field with confidence and vigor. I am filled with courage and dare to soar. I am an Osprey flying far, fast, and hard. - Christopher Warren, 2010 Catalog 2013-2014 Table of Contents Board Members Florida Board of Governors Richard A. Beard, III Tony Bennett Matthew M.
