The University of Florida doubled down today on its strategy to climb to a top 10 national ranking among public research universities, announcing its intention to recruit top minds in personalized medicine, unmanned vehicles, online learning and seven other fields. The announcement coincides with the first day of classes for UF Online, the state’s first fully online four-year bachelor’s degrees at a public university. The hiring spree includes recruitment of a brain trust to lead UF Online’s R&D arm, known as the Online Learning Institute. The same legislation that granted UF the state money to push for preeminence mandated that UF lead the development of online higher education in Florida.
