The College of Community Innovation and Education is the college anchor to UCF Downtown, a twenty-first century campus that opens access for students, provides pathways into high-demand career fields, fosters collaboration with our neighbors in meaningful ways and improves countless lives through the power of education. Programs located in downtown Orlando offer students numerous opportunities to engage in community-based experiences in the heart of the city. Internships, practicums and research take place within walking distance of the downtown campus. Students are close to the courthouse, Orlando’s City Hall, several schools and major corporate headquarters. A quick ride on Sunrail or Lynx takes students to the two major hospitals in Orlando, and so much more.
“UCF Downtown opens up opportunities for students to partner with other healthcare industry professionals in the area. From internships, research and employment, our students are uniquely poised to immerse themselves in the epicenter of Central Florida healthcare and garner hands-on experience while pursuing their education at UCF."
