Our college is where university students nurture creativity and discover how culture provides context to their studies and to their lives. We foster an innovative environment that encourages cross-disciplinary collaborations and provides positive, high-impact student experiences in the arts and humanities for all UCF students.

We owe our successes in large part to the generous contributions of the alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations who have supported our efforts. At the College of Arts and Humanities, every gift has an impact that extends beyond the campus into our communities, and every gift is deeply appreciated. We thank those who have invested in the college and inspired our students and faculty to pursue their academic and professional dreams. Because of donors like you, the College of Arts and Humanities can continue to reach for the stars and make dreams and aspirations within the college a reality.
