In Response to Recent Tragic Events

UCF Cares stands in solidarity and empathy with our students, staff and faculty, and members of the entire UCF community who are being directly or indirectly impacted by current racially motivated events. 

 Our communities are hurting because of the re-opening of deep racial wounds on top of the many losses caused by COVID-19. This is causing profound psychological impact and trauma on our mental health. UCF has resource to support students during this difficult time. Please reach out if you would like to get support for this or other issues by connecting with Student Care Services at 407-823-5607 or CAPS at 407-823-2811.

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
  • Violence Prevention
  • Mental Health
  • Diversity & Inclusion
