February 14th, 2017 by Mike Vasilinda

University of Florida President Kent Fuchs spoke to the Economics Club of Florida today in the State Capital. FSU President John Thrasher sat nearby . Fuchs says UF is lacking in three areas to be a top ten research university: Fundraising, State funding,and student to faculty ratio.

“We rank 34th out of these 34 universities. At the bottom with 21 students for each professor.  top ranked Michigan has a a student to faculty ratio of 12-1. Our goal is to be among the top ten public universities by anyone’s measure, and to get to that we need a student to faculty ratio of 16 to 1” says Fuchs.

Fuchs says that would require hiring 550 more faculty.
