Initiatives and Impact

The gift of education influences a person for the rest of their life. It turns dreams into possible realities and expands horizons. Giving is simple, but the impact touches generations.

The College Community Innovation and Education needs strong scholarship and fellowship programs to attract and retain the best and brightest students from Florida and beyond. Scholarships and fellowships support undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students by supplementing the cost of tuition, fees, books and other expenses associated with attending college.

Attracting and retaining faculty members who perform well in teaching, research and academic leadership roles is vital to the college. Endowed professorships provide critical support to enhance the efforts of our faculty.

CodeOrlando Camp

Planning is underway for a 3-week Summer CodeOrlando Intensive Tech Immersion program in July of 2021. The program will serve 8th - 12th graders, and will be free, based on need. We are targeting students from underrepresented communities.

Participants will engage in hands-on project based learning with emphasis on coding and computer science skills as well as visit local colleges, tech development companies, and organizations using technology to help people and our planet. They will receive valuable instruction from Aaron Gordon on mindfulness, presentation skills, and life skills. Students will have the opportunity to meet with representatives of Orlando based technology companies such as EA Sports and Advent Health.


Dean's Advisory Board

The College of Community Innovation and Education Dean’s Advisory Board, made up of selected alumni and friends, offers our dean input and guidance on the future direction of our college. As experts in their individual fields, members consider complex challenges, help set priorities and garner additional resources necessary to further our college’s current and future strengths.


The College of Community Innovation and Education offers high quality, innovative academic programs that reflect the needs of a diverse society. Your contributions — annual and planned giving, major gifts or endowments — greatly impact the college by allowing us to provide our students with scholarships as well as funding programs that support our communities.
