Who We Are
The mission of the Karen L. Smith Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning is to support excellence in teaching and learning at UCF. We are dedicated to promoting the success of our stakeholders—the UCF full-time, part-time, and graduate student faculty—and, indirectly, the students they serve and the staff and administrators with whom they work.
Congratulations to the first cohort of our Knighted Faculty Program, who had their knighting ceremony featuring Knightro on Friday, April 9th!
