Support Our Learners

The UF TREEO Center seeks to develop in-demand industry recognized credentialing programs that will help build workforce capacity across the state of Florida and beyond. It is a substantial investment in market research and content development but one that will bring awareness to the environmental occupations industry and serve as a career pathway for future generations.

With UF TREEO’s commitment to excellence, along with your generous gift, UF TREEO has the potential to be recognized as the gold standard for comprehensive environmental occupation career and workforce training across the state and beyond. Your partnership is important to us and we believe that together, we can accelerate student trajectories, stay true to the university’s land-grant mission, and ensure a qualified pipeline of graduates who are ready to engage and excel in the water and wastewater industry.

How can you help?
