Purpose-Driven Research

At the College of Community Innovation and Education, we believe in performing research with a purpose — to advance groundbreaking ideas that result in social impact. Through our innovative, interdisciplinary research teams, partnerships with private and public organizations and community engagement, we work together to develop solutions to complex social issues that affect our local, national and global communities.

The College of Community Innovation and Education Office of Research provides a safe, diverse and inclusive space for UCF faculty members to brainstorm disruptive ideas capable of challenging the status quo of the academic enterprise, advancing scholarship within our diverse disciplines and directly impacting our community.
