The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) is your host for the Academic Orientation. The two-day event takes place in the Student Union and Classroom 1 buildings on the Orlando Campus. Each day of the orientation is filled with important activities that will provide valuable information to enable you to have a successful start to your career at UCF. At the Academic Orientation you will meet the president, provost, deans, chairs, other new faculty, and directors of support departments. These days also include complimentary breakfast and luncheon events. Click here to register at FCTL.
