Gator Advocates is an organized group of University of Florida alumni, faculty, students, staff and friends who work to advance the University of Florida's education and land grant mission through advocacy, education, and communication. 

Our mission is to advance the University of Florida's academic mission. We do this by educating elected and appointed officials, state and community leaders, and all Floridians about the University of Florida's economic, cultural, and societal impact on the state, nation, and world.

To do this, we need your voice. Join Gator Advocates today!
