Student clubs

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion is many things — a physical space, a series of programs, a resource for support — but mostly it is where we, the people of USF, come to explore and experience the unifying strength of our differences.

Accreditation

Accreditation is a professional standard that ensures students receive a high-quality education. In the United States, there are six regional accreditation agencies which are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. These agencies regularly evaluate an institution’s academic programs, administration, mission, financial health, and resources.
