GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB)-- Forbes named the University of Florida one of the top ten employers among public universities.

UF ranked sixth among public universities for being a top employer and 17th among all universities that made the list.

The ratings were based on surveys given to universities across the nation as well as nominations from other people in education.

“It's a great honor to be recognized as being a great place to work but we're always looking at ways to improve in terms of being competitive with our peer institutions,” UF spokesperson Steve Orlando said. “There's a high bar out there and we're always looking for ways to improve."

The survey was conducted in partnership with Statista, a market research company.
