According to UNF Media Relations’ news release, Dr. Hopkins initiated the University’s first capital campaign “Access to Excellence.” At the time, the campaign was the largest philanthropic effort in Jacksonville’s history and raised more than $100 million.

“Dr. Hopkins will be remembered elevating the student engagement opportunities, faculty research projects, and the overall prominence of the University as well as spearheading a capital campaign that greatly contributed to the University’s ongoing growth and development,” said UNF President David Szymanski to UNF News. […] “She will be greatly missed.”
