Safety & Care

The Dean of Students Office focuses on creating and supporting a safe environment in which students live and study. As part of our mission to ensure that Every Gator Counts our team focuses on our key responsibilities including coordination of the Dean-on-Call crisis and incident response, processing medical petitions, programming for student code of conduct and honor code, and responding to students in crisis. Our team also coordinates the U Matter, We Care program.

U Matter, We Care

At UF Every Gator Counts. U Matter, We Care serves as UF’s umbrella program for UF’s caring culture and provides students in distress with support and coordination of the wide variety of appropriate resources.

Medical Petitions

There may be times in a student’s academic career when unexpected situations arise that interfere with the student’s ability to be academically successful in a given semester. Students may wish to consider petitioning for a medical withdrawal.

Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution

Students are what drive the University of Florida. Through the disciplinary process, it is our aim to help students understand the impact their behavior has on the global community, and to assist them with making future decisions that lead to personal and professional success.
