We have 40k not 37k... that 37k is about 2 years old.  It was in the paper this year that we surpassed 40k for the first time.

UCF claims they have 42,000+ this year which is supposedly about 800 or 900 more than USF.

However, the official USF Research site mentions 47,284, so I'm not sure what the real number is:

University of South Florida

An Overview of the University's Research Programs

The University of South Florida (USF), established in 1956 as a public university, is a comprehensive multi-campus research university serving more than 47,284 students. With four campuses, USF is home to medical clinics and hospitals, a major mental health research institute, and two public broadcasting stations. The University employs more than 3,112 full-time instructional faculty and 2,977 full-time staff. In FY2002/2003, USF generated $254.8 million annually in sponsored research. Its endowment exceeds $244 million and includes 55 endowed chairs. USF is classified as a Doctoral/Research University-Extensive, which is the highest classification by the Carnegie Foundation. According to the latest (2001) annual National Science Foundation benchmarks survey that looks at R&D expenditures in the fields of science and engineering, USF ranked 44th in public universities and 29th in R&D expenditures in the medical sciences. USF faculty members are making national and international contributions in their fields, and their commitment to quality education is central to the University's teaching, research, and service mission.

The largest metropolitan research university and the second largest in total enrollment in the State University System of Florida, USF offers a wide variety of degree programs with both basic and applied orientations, including 83 baccalaureate, 82 master's, and 29 doctoral degrees, including the M.D. These degree programs are administered by 10 schools and colleges: Architecture and Community Design, Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Marine Science, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, and Visual and Performing Arts. Specialized credit and non-credit programs are administered by the School of Continuing Education.

The University is dedicated to the discovery of new knowledge, insights, and forms of expression through significant innovative research and other creative activity and to the preservation, organization, analysis, and synthesis of existing knowledge. As a leading publicly supported university, USF accomplishes its research mission by building on existing program strengths, by fostering effective, cross-disciplinary approaches, and by contributing to the resolutions of social, cultural, economic, medical and technological challenges facing the metropolitan population of our community.

USF faculty, students, and staff are proactive in the search for new knowledge and consistently demonstrate their concern about the world in which we live. With the support of private and public agencies, they contribute to our knowledge about the world and apply their findings and skills to solving many of the problems facing contemporary society. Many contributions evolve from basic research; others, from practical applications of new knowledge. Other projects make specialized training available to public officials, to organizations working for social betterment, to religious and educational institutions, and to business and manufacturing organizations. Through sponsored and non-sponsored activities, USF faculty, students, and staff make significant contributions to the university instructional programs.

The dedication of USF researchers, students, and staff has contributed to the phenomenal growth in research that USF experienced over the past 18 years. In 1985/86, the University received $22.3 million in external funding for research projects. In 2002/2003, USF generated $254.8 million in contracts and grants.

Organizational entities that promote community health care service activities at the University of South Florida include affiliation agreements with hospitals in the metropolitan area. Located on the Tampa Campus, the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute has achieved National Cancer Institute designation and has developed a strong national reputation for excellence. The James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital, in walking distance from the USF College of Medicine, provides research and training experiences for faculty, staff, and students. The College of Medicine is also closely affiliated with the Tampa General Hospital, which provides training for residents and medical students. Other affiliation agreements with All Children's,  Bayfront, and Bay Pines Hospitals provide for shared facilities, faculty, and equipment, as well as support for graduate students and internship programs. These types of agreements enable the institutions to pool resources, such as laboratory space, and enable compliance committees to stimulate an exchange of ideas.

Throughout the University's development, the faculty at USF has seen and met the needs of the Tampa Bay area. A variety of activities are conducted by specialized research and development centers and institutes. The University has over 100 such centers and institutes encompassing a wide array of disciplines. Many of these centers and institutes function in an interdisciplinary fashion, enabling coordination of projects across colleges. The services and programs offered to the community through the University of South Florida centers and institutions are far too numerous to reiterate here, but many can be found at the USF Research Web Site: www.research.usf.edu.  As an institution dedicated to excellent teaching, the University's fundamental goal is to evoke in its students a lifelong commitment to learning that enables them to become thoughtful, active, productive, and compassionate citizens. The University is committed to the concept of total student development: intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and moral. A major institutional focus is on providing programs and services that reflect standards of quality that foster the development of each student's talents to the fullest.
