Florida State University faculty and staff are instrumental to the University’s overall academic achievements not only through their tireless efforts in classrooms, laboratories, offices and other areas within the university community but also through their financial support. The Faculty and Staff Campaign gives Florida State University employees an opportunity to become involved in fundraising efforts to support initiatives that will elevate Florida State into the top 25 rankings among all public universities. Payroll deduction is available for Florida State University employees to support the University initiatives, programs, colleges and units that mean most to them.
