The Symposium registration is now open. For questions about the event, please email us.
The Symposium will have two tracks. Each track will identify practical career development applications that faculty and staff can incorporate into their respective functional areas.
The Theory Track will focus on academic and advising best practices that shape meaningful experiences for students throughout their life cycle as a UF Gator.
