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
  • Violence Prevention
  • Mental Health
  • Diversity & Inclusion


This year’s Week of Action is inspired by the popular Netlfix Series, Stranger Things. Demogorgon’s are known to cause distress and anytime during the semester you may feel like you’re stuck in the Upside Down. If you notice a student or yourself showing signs of “stranger things”, UCF Cares is here to help! Avoid entering the upside down- by doing your part to connect with programs and resources that can help (don’t forget your eggo’s)!
