Creating a Bold, New Future
At UCF, we believe that bigger is better – and universities must harness their size with a constant pursuit of excellence to have the greatest impact on the world around them. As UCF’s fifth president, I am committed to making UCF the preeminent research university for the 21st century. That means continuing UCF’s remarkable trajectory in academics, athletics, research and community impact while staying true to our values of expanding opportunity and demanding excellence.
As the nation’s largest source of talent and best university partner, UCF will set an example for what higher education can and should be for the rest of the nation. As its chief storyteller, chief fundraiser and No. 1 fan, I believe in the power of our people to make Central Florida a fantastic place to learn, live and work – with the best yet to come!
