The campus community is invited to the 20th anniversary celebration and tribute to UCF President John C. Hitt. This milestone event will take place on Thursday, March 1, from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. in the Student Union, Pegasus Ballroom. Doors open at 1:30 p.m., and refreshments will be served during the reception that follows the program.
Students, faculty and staff members, along with campus friends will have the opportunity to create handwritten notes for the president and record a short congratulatory video.
Dr. Hitt and his wife, Martha, joined the UCF family on March 1, 1992. Since then, UCF has become one of America’s great success stories in higher education. Enrollment at UCF has nearly tripled, making the university Florida’s largest and No. 2 in the nation, and UCF has emerged as a major metropolitan research university of global significance.
“It is a special privilege to serve as president of a university. Society invests in universities not just its money, but something far more precious, the potential of enterprising men and women who seek to enrich their lives through higher education.” – Dr. John C. Hitt, Inaugural Address
