A New Day Dawns: UCF Inclusive Excellence

UCF Diversity Week is a celebration of our diverse community and an opportunity to explore topics across the broad range of human identity, experience, and interaction. Diversity Week activities are intended to stimulate our campus and move us to a more inclusive culture.

This year marks the 26th UCF Diversity Week. This year’s theme, “A New Day Dawns” signals the important changes coming to our campus with a new President, as well as the opportunities those changes bring. We are close to federal designation as an Hispanic Serving Institution. We live in a changing Central Florida community and a country debating fair treatment of all members of our society. We have built a foundation of excellence in higher education diversity and inclusion – how will we bring greater transformation and impactful action to our efforts?

Get engaged!
