The Future of UCF
When I first started at UCF, I believed we had the potential to become one of the nation’s and the world’s leading public metropolitan research universities. After meeting with many students, faculty and staff, it is even more clear that we have the tenacity and, most importantly, the talent to achieve this.
Our people drive our impact and define our university, and our path to excellence will not be defined by what other universities have done. It will be based on our own unique strengths and character and a commitment to academic, operational and inclusive excellence in areas that matter most to our future and are critical to our mission.
Together, we have an opportunity to be that bright spot within higher education — a university built around a commitment to each other and a desire to make our world, and the work we do, continuously better. I look forward to building that with you.
