Our Mission

To support the success of UF's core education, research and service mission by providing high quality, expert, context-sensitive, and responsive legal services to - and being a strategic thinking partner for - the University of Florida and its Trustees, faculty and staff in their UF roles. The law does not drive the core work of UF, but it is a design parameter for that work. When the OGC, faculty and staff proactively collaborate early on, together we can enable UF priority endeavors and avoid unnecessary law-related delays, disruption, or increased costs.

The OGC's principles, under which we assess our performance are: client-service, collaboration, accountability, professionalism, sustainability, and integrity.
