The shorter duration of this program benefits participants as well as host institutions needing an experienced partner on a short-term basis. UF faculty and highly experienced non-academics, including legal experts, business professionals, artists, scientists, and journalists, are encouraged to apply.

You might be assigned to work on:
• Trainings and workshops
• Consulting on faculty or staff development
• Curricula and materials
• Lectures (graduate or undergrad)
• Strategic or institutional planning
• Needs assessments and evals for programs/institutions
