Whether you are just joining UCF or are planning classes for your final semester, we are excited to provide you with opportunities and support to help each of you reach your academic and professional dreams.

Even as the ways that we teach and learn change, you can have confidence in the high value of a UCF education and our commitment to providing you with the resources you need to be successful while you are here and after you graduate.

At UCF, our motto is “Reach for the Stars.” It pushes us to think big and to refuse to be limited by what others say is possible. This mindset has helped UCF become one of the most innovative universities in the country, with a sense of entrepreneurship and optimism that is unique to Knight Nation.

Because of this, UCF is an outstanding leading research institution that remains on the rise. We harness our ingenuity in teaching and research and our strong community connections to help you reach new heights — in the classroom, laboratory, studio, field and court — so you can show the brilliance and unwavering confidence that Knights are known for.

I hope you take advantage of everything available to you this year to make the most of your college experience and set yourself up for the future. Our job is to remove the barriers to your success so that you are able to unleash your full potential.

Best wishes for a great academic year, and in everything … Charge On!


Alexander N. Cartwright, Ph.D.
