Dr. Liz Klonoff on 5-Day Rule
Last month I updated you on some of the changes that were occurring at the Office of Research as we realign some of our functions to provide better customer service to the university community, operate more effectively and march forward toward achieving our Collective Impact strategic goals.
UCF’s Center for Research and Education in Arts, Technology, and Entertainment —CREATE— conducts multidisciplinary, project and research-driven initiatives, with a S.T.E.A.M. focus.
The center engages the Central Florida community in a variety of ways from after school programs and workshops aimed at teens to unique opportunities such as developing a digital storytelling project in Orlando’s Parramore neighborhood. Walt Disney World and the Elizabeth Morse Genius Foundation have provided grants to support these activities. Want to know more?
