The next presidential search open forum and UCF Presidential Search Committee meeting will be held at UCF Downtown on Monday, Dec. 9.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to attend the open forum to share what qualifications and characteristics they are looking for in UCF’s next president. The open forum will be from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the east wing of the Dr. Phillips Academic Commons building in room 161.

The Presidential Search Committee will meet at 3:30 p.m. in Dr. Phillips Academic Commons room 169. The campus community and public are invited to attend or watch online.

Parking for both events is available in the Parramore Garage. Visit for more information and a map of the downtown campus.

The campus and Central Florida community can also provide feedback via an online survey. The survey also is available in Spanish.

Input during open forums, as well as the online survey, will help guide Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates – the firm chosen to aid in the search – and members of the Presidential Search Committee in recruiting and selecting candidates.

Representatives from the search firm and the Presidential Search Committee will host the open forum.

Additional open forums to provide feedback will be held in January.

The next president is expected to be chosen next spring and start next summer.
