Alumni Affairs: Academy of Alumni & Friends (AAF)
In 1967, a group of 100 dentists in Florida formed The Academy 100 to support efforts in the state to create a dental school at the University of Florida. The University of Florida College of Dentistry has enjoyed tremendous support in the past from the Academy One Hundred and the Dental Alumni Association, which formed after we began graduating dental students. In 2002 both groups voted to join together into one collective organization known as the Academy of Alumni and Friends (AAF)officially began in 2003.
All graduates of our D.M.D. or residency programs (alumni), as well as those who support the college through financial gifts (friends) are members of the AAF.
The AAF became active on January 1, 2003 and it will continue the long-standing tradition of assisting the dental school as it strives to improve the quality of its programs for faculty, students, alumni and friends.
