SDES News & Happenings
For 15 years, the UCF Creed’s core values of Integrity, Scholarship, Community, Creativity and Excellence have guided our conduct and decisions and helped UCF become an engaging and inclusive learning community.
We recognize that diversity and inclusivity strengthen us, and we condemn any form of hate, discrimination and injustice.
As we ponder and discuss race, religion and other important topics, our opinions and beliefs will often differ. It is in this spirit that I encourage you to actively listen, engage in scholarly dialogue and demonstrate our shared commitment to respect for all Knights. I challenge you to demonstrate civility. Acts of hate and offensive behavior will not be tolerated.
If you are feeling anxiety or if you need additional support, I encourage you to consider the following resources:
- Counseling and Psychological Services – www.caps.sdes.ucf.edu or 407-823-2811; and
- UCF Cares – www.cares.sdes.ucf.edu or 407-823-5607.
We are all Knights. Let’s continue to support one another and stand united.
