We’re Looking For Our Next Visionary Leader

University of Central Florida President John C. Hitt will retire as president on June 30, 2018, ending a remarkable 26-year tenure that has seen UCF become one of the biggest and best universities in the country.

Understanding that the role of UCF president is far more than a job — it’s a chance to lead a university with bold academics, broad research capabilities and international impact — we have launched a robust and extensive search for our fifth president.

“I view this search as an opportunity to continue the trajectory established by one of the nation’s greatest university presidents.”
— Board of Trustees Chairman Marcos Marchena
