Data Selection

Choose a category from the above tab menu to navigate to the appropriate data of interest. From the returned page you will be able to select the topic data associated to the category from the left side navigational menu. The default reporting period will be displayed automatically with the most current information available.

The right side navigational area allows the person an opportunity in most cases to select multiple years, percentage calculations, comparison data selectors, exporting capabilities to Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel, and an opportunity to graph the data for the reporting period selected.

An index of topics and subtopics reported by the Institutional Research staff may be accessed by selecting the Factbook Index from the left side navigational menu throughout the entire site.

Additionally, each tab category has an area which will display additional or related files that have been uploaded for a particular category. If the "Related Files" navigational link is not present in the left navigational area after selecting a category (top menu), this means that no files have been uploaded for that particular category.

Quick Facts

The Quick Facts link, located on the left navigational area on each page, will take you to a page that provides quick reference to data that has been entered into the fact book. This Quick Facts page represents only the data that has been entered from the most recent year available and the year and reporting period is displayed in the header. The title is linked to the actual page for which the data has been gleaned from which will provide more detail information for that particular data topic.

Data Comments

Links provided within the pages themselves are links to specific comments related to a particular year or data element. In most cases, a new window will open displaying these individual comments. Please read all comments related to the data topic for additional information for that data topic.

UWF has a strong presence in downtown Pensacola. In spring 2001 the Florida Legislature authorized the transfer of 22 historic properties, located in the center of downtown, from the Department of State to the university. Now, our historic downtown campus has opened its first educational facilities in the J. Earle Bowden Building in Historic Pensacola Village, as well as the Public History and Heritage Center.
