Join the UF Techie Toastmasters Club, a club hosted by UF Innovate and backed by Toastmasters International to help develop and improve upon public speaking and leadership skills. Our club was founded with a primary focus on helping assist startup founders and staff with networking amongst entrepreneurs, while also helping them develop better ways to help deliver their “pitch” and any other presented materials. We’ve had many of members graduate from UF Innovate, and we look forward to helping many more companies and their staff!

Postdoc Editors Association

The UF Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is pleased to announce the creation of the UF Postdoctoral Editors Association (UF-PEA), a service to help postdocs who seek to improve English grammar and writing style.  The UF-PEA is comprised of postdoc volunteers from multiple colleges across the University who will offer preliminary review of manuscripts, grant applications, posters, slides and other scholarly presentations.  While this service will be most useful to postdocs who speak English as a second language, the service is free and open to all postdocs at UF.  Our editors will provide feedback on structure and style of writing, but refrain from commenting on scholarship which is best honed by interactions between the postdoc and their mentor.  UF-PEA will facilitate higher level postdoc-mentor interactions by reducing time spent on basic writing needs.
