Hometown campus. National prestige. A message from Dr. Laurey T. Stryker, Campus CEO.

USF Sarasota-Manatee continues to expand its role and commitment to the region, as exemplified by the construction of our state of the art campus that will open this fall. We want you to take advantage of this great new--and PUBLIC--educational asset in our community. Our new campus will enable us to serve your higher education needs and goals better than ever before!

We're proud to increase our role as an indispensable asset in the community, and continue to be a source of pride for all residents. We produce the very professionals that help the Sarasota-Manatee community grow. Graduates stay here, work here, and enhance our community's quality of life. We are constantly searching for new ways to align our programs with community needs and to keep up with the latest technology developments.
