The USF-funded CREATE awards will support the launch of research projects in the areas of innovation, technology and aging, antimicrobial resistance, precision medicine and AI-generated materials.

Record number of summer campers flock to USF’s campuses

USF is seeing unprecedented growth in its youth summer camp offerings, with significant increases in the number of camps and double the number of participants. While it may appear to be just summer fun, many camps offer a peek at career options and serve as the first point of contact at USF for future Bulls.

AAU Membership Fueling USF’s Momentum

USF’s historic invitation to join the Association of American Universities has taken what many in Tampa Bay have once considered a “best-kept secret” to an unprecedented new level. Being an AAU member is a tremendous milestone for USF as it formalizes USF's position as a leading research university. USF is the first public university in Florida to be invited to join the AAU in nearly 40 years and is now one of only two institutions from the State University System of Florida to serve as an AAU member.
