USF is Research Driven

USF is a top 50 public research university with an impressive research enterprise. From developing clean sources of energy to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities, USF researchers seek to make the world a better place. 

Students are encouraged to pursue interdisciplinary research opportunities as early as their freshman year. And "research" here takes many forms, from classroom to community, laboratories to internships. Faculty and staff prepare undergraduate and graduate students for the future, focusing on local, national and global solutions to society's most difficult problems.
