Jim and Julia Rosengren

What do sea turtles, veterans, language programs, science and football have in common?
They’ll all be better off thanks to the generosity of Jim and Julia Rosengren, who have committed $6.6 million to support those programs at the University of Central Florida. It is among the largest alumni commitments in university history. Combined with their previous donations, the Rosengrens have committed $7.95 million to UCF – the largest total from an alumnus in university history.
Julia, who has traveled the world and speaks nine languages, wanted to support foreign-language programs after participating in STARTALK, an intensive three-week summer immersion program in Russian language and culture at UCF.
