Gatorship is an all-inclusive on campus weekend retreat for UF students interested in learning about social justice and their role in creating a more equitable and just campus environment. Through interactive presentations, engaging activities, and facilitated dialogue led by Gatorship staff, participants will explore social identities such as Race, Ethnicity, Gender, Sexuality, Religion, Ability, and Socioeconomic Status.

This transformational experience gives students the opportunity to build strong connections with a diverse group of their peers, explore issues of inequity and oppression, and become empowered to enact positive social change on campus and beyond.

Participant Applications are open to all UF students and are available in the Fall (October).
Gatorship Staff Applications are open to past Gatorship participants and are available in the Spring (March).
