UCF Cares About You!

UCF Cares is an umbrella of care-related programs and resources dedicated to fostering a caring community of Knights. However, it takes all of us from students to staff, from faculty to friends, to show that we care about one another. The goal of the UCF CARES initiative is to build a culture of care one KNIGHT at a time. We are all UCF and need to do our part in connecting any fellow knights in distress to appropriate resources.

UCF Cares Focus Areas include:

  • Safety and Wellbeing
  • Respect
  • Sexual Violence
  • Mental Health
  • Diversity & Inclusion

Posted on Friday, August 19th, 2016 @ 8:04am by Alexander Tompkins

Please join us on 8/22/2016 from 11:00am to 2:00pm in the Student Union Atrium. We will be coloring a large #orlandounited banner and taking time to reflect as a community on the events of this summer. The completed banner will be displayed in the Student Union as an expression of the beauty that comes from an entire community standing together as one. In addition to banner coloring, there will be a popcorn bar, and letter writing to the UCF community. Other events will be occurring throughout the day in various locations around campus, including Rapid HIV Testing, Safe Zone Training, and a Blood Drive. We hope you will come out to show your support!

The Bounce Back campaign from UCF Cares offers students tips and resources for managing mild to moderate depression. These tools have been proven to lessen the symptoms of depression and are easy to adopt and self-manage, thereby providing a resource that students can use even if they are not comfortable seeking professional help.
