UWF celebrates sixth annual Founders Week

“This celebration is something that I look forward to every year,” said UWF President Martha D. Saunders. “It gives us the opportunity to mark how far we’ve come since our groundbreaking in April 1965, and envision our future.”


The week will kick off with Paint UWF Blue and Green on April 15. The University community is encouraged to wear blue and green throughout the day and use the hashtag #UWFFoundersWeek in social media posts.

Founders Week will continue with more ways to celebrate UWF, including Argos Day of Service. Service projects are planned in Pensacola on April 16 and in the Fort Walton Beach area on April 17. Those interested in participating can learn more and register online at uwf.edu/argosdayofservice.

UWF’s sixth annual Day of Giving, an online, social-media-driven effort that supports the University and its programs, will be held on April 18. Argonauts and friends are invited to give to UWF funds at dayofgiving.uwf.edu.

On April 18, UWF will also celebrate the grand opening of Anatomage Lab in the Usha Kundu, MD College of Health. The Usha Kundu, MD College of Health acquired three technologically advanced anatomy visualization and virtual dissection tables. The tables have enhanced learning experiences for anatomy and physiology, nursing and athletic training students.
