Provost’s Welcome

As provost, I am fortunate to work with bold, energetic and entrepreneurial faculty, staff, students and alumni. They aim high, thrive on change and creativity and strive to make a better today and tomorrow for our society.

Together, we lift lives and livelihoods through the power of education and by respecting and valuing diversity of thought and background. At the heart of our efforts is an exceptional faculty who inspire us and drive innovation in teaching, research, service, partnership and student learning at UCF.

It is invigorating to be part of a new kind of university that pushes boundaries and is at the forefront of reimagining higher education in the 21st century.

Let's charge on!
