Meet the Presidential Search Committee
With the announcement that John C. Hitt is retiring from the presidency, UCF has begun its search for a new president. Representatives from the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, student body, UCF Foundation, Central Florida community, Florida Board of Governors and DirectConnect to UCF partner institutions have been charged with finding the next president to lead the university’s commitment to bold academics, innovative research and international impact. UCF anticipates announcing its fifth president in March.
“Replacing President Hitt is an enormous responsibility. I’ve been very pleased with the progress we’ve made so far, especially with how well the committee has listened to the voices of students, faculty, alumni and all of those connected to UCF.”Cristina Barreto, Search Committee Member
