All About EEP: Prep for Spring 2023

Friday, Dec. 2 | 2:30 – 4:30pm | Virtual via Zoom

The Employee Education Program (EEP) is an opportunity funded by university resources that enables full-time UF Academic Personnel, TEAMS employees, and USPS employees who have been employed in good standing for at least six months to receive tuition assistance for up to six credit hours of instruction per semester at the state university closest to their work location. TEAMS employees may also attend classes at a public community or state college closest to their work location. Any classes taken during a regular work shift need to be coordinated with and approved by the employee’s supervisor.

The event will feature Verlissa Ford, Education & Awards Coordinator for UF Training & Organizational Development, along with representatives from the Office of the University Registrar.

What Our Members Say

What APA does is important in connecting the dots to fill out the picture of our multifaceted campus community.”

I love having the opportunity to hear from those on campus that are making a difference.

These events and the APA help us to have access to speakers we need to hear, and to one another, across campus.

Warm Welcome

The Warm Welcome is our annual first event of the academic year. We started the Warm Welcome to officially welcome newer staff to the UF community, foster a sense of belonging and community among all staff, offer inspiration from UF leaders, and spark new connections across the institution.
