The Bob Graham Center’s Knight Fellows-in-Residence Program enables the Bob Graham Center to bring national leaders to the University of Florida campus to share their expertise with UF faculty and students. Funded as part of grant awarded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Knight Fellows are individuals that have 10 or more years of experience in the public or private sector and have a record of professional and public distinction and community engagement that has earned them recognition for their civic leadership. Knight Fellows will work directly with university faculty and students in the academic areas that most closely relate to their respective fields of practice.
