To comply with the Florida Board of Governor’s regulation 9.016 on prohibited expenditures, the University of Florida has closed the Office of the Chief Diversity Officer, eliminated DEI positions and administrative appointments, and halted DEI-focused contracts with outside vendors.

Under the direction of UF Human Resources, university employees whose positions were eliminated will receive UF’s standard twelve weeks of pay. These colleagues are allowed and encouraged to apply, between now and Friday, April 19, for expedited consideration for different positions currently posted with the university. UF HR will work to fast-track the interview process and provide an answer on all applications within the twelve-week window.

Additionally, the Office of the Chief Financial Officer will reallocate the approximately $5 million in funds — previously reported to Tallahassee for DEI expenses, including salaries and expenditures — into a faculty recruitment fund to be administered by the Office of the Provost.

Finally, the University of Florida is – and will always be – unwavering in our commitment to universal human dignity. As we educate students by thoughtfully engaging a wide range of ideas and views, we will continue to foster a community of trust and respect for every member of the Gator Nation. The University of Florida is an elite institution because of our incredible faculty who are committed to teaching, discovering, and serving.

And they wonder why no-one watches - ABC News over the years.

The ABC has its lowest news audiences of all time at the moment.

Once the place to turn to.

Now a joke.

Could this be a hint … ABC News over the years:

this artwork forms an integral part of our brand.

I kid you not.

Introducing the ATO’s new Indigenous artwork designed for us by Indigenous artist Marcus Lee.

It symbolises our connection to culture, Country and each other.

The dots and patterns are pathways connecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities. The colours reflect the vibrant tones of the land, forests, rivers, and oceans across Australia, connecting us to Country.

Developed together with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees and communities, this artwork forms an integral part of our brand.
