I hope this finds you and your loved ones safe during this challenging time. As the college prepares to celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2021, I was reminded by Carl Van Ness, our university archivist, that HHP is rooted in moments like these.
This college grew out of an academic division focused on hygiene and health – created following the Spanish flu outbreak in 1918. In 1946, that division was transformed into our college. It has evolved and changed over three quarters of a century. But our roots are deep and we remain committed to advancing human wellness, equipping students for their future, and translating academic findings to improve lives.
In this issue of Performance, we celebrate new records in research funding and philanthropy, our highest student enrollment to date, and the amazing work being accomplished by our outstanding faculty, staff, students and alumni.
Enjoy the read and Go Gators!
