What is Gatorship?

Gatorship is an all-inclusive on-campus and virtual 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, disability, and socioeconomic status.

This 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 are available in October.

Gatorship Staff Applications are available to past Gatorship participants and open in March.


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.
