What is Gatorship?
Gatorship is an all-inclusive on-campus symposium 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, participants will explore social identities such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, disability, and socioeconomic status.
This educational and transformational experience gives students the opportunity to build strong connections with a diverse group of 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 will be available in February.
Interested presenters can apply to speak by completing this form by 2/3/2023.
2023 Gatorship Symposium Theme: It Takes A Village; Building a Culture of Inclusion
Gatorship aims to use our power to give students the tools to deconstruct their own experiences and rebuild their perspectives through a socially and critically conscious lens. We aim to do this by providing foundational social justice education, facilitating dialogue across difference, and empowering students to become social change agents within the University of Florida and beyond.
