2017 President’s Message

UCF prides itself on being America’s Leading Partnership University, and our greatest partner is our community.

Each October, our faculty, staff, and students join with the Heart of Florida United Way to address some of our community’s greatest challenges and to benefit those who need help the most.

The money we raise for the United Way supports the local agencies that drive change, respond to emergencies, and provide hope on a daily basis for a better life. This year, please join me in reaching our fundraising goal of $200,000.

Even small donations can have a big impact for someone in need, and the United Way offers many options for directing your contributions. I invite you to find a cause that aligns with your values, experiences, or goals.

UCF Knights have a proud tradition of generosity, and we thrive on confronting challenges and delivering solutions. Please give what you can today to help make Central Florida a better place for all of us.

Cordially yours,

John C. Hitt

President, University of Central Florida
