Faculty at the University of West Florida are active scholars and researchers. UWF values research because it enriches the learning environment of our students, provides solutions to problems in our region, and contributes to the wellbeing of our community. Whether its finding solutions to local environmental contamination, uncovering archeological artifacts long hidden, developing better ways to offer quality online instruction, exploring new strategies to help young children learn, determining the economic benefit of a new industry, or finding out how to protect the habitat of endangered birds in the everglades, UWF researchers are committed to finding better ways to solve real problems. In fact, that is what is unique about UWF research – its applied focus and regional impact. Read More
