New and re-emerging diseases threaten Florida's tourism, health and economy, which are particularly vulnerable due to the state's mild climate and diverse agriculture. Weather patterns, commercial plant imports, and annual global visitors all have the potential to unsuspectingly carry pathogens from other countries into our state. The Emerging Pathogens Institute fuses key disciplines to develop research, education, and outreach capabilities designed to preserve Florida's health and economy, and to prevent or contain new and re-emerging diseases.
The Center for African Studies is in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences at the University of Florida. As a National Resource Center for African Studies, our mission is to promote excellence in teaching and research on Africa in all the disciplines at the University of Florida. The Center also disseminates knowledge about Africa to the wider community through an integrated outreach program to schools, colleges, community groups, and businesses.
The Center’s mission is to advance knowledge about Latin America and the Caribbean and its peoples throughout the Hemisphere, and to enhance the scope and quality of research, teaching, and outreach in Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies at the University of Florida.
