Be Part of Something BIG
With more than 68,000 students, UCF is the biggest university in Florida, and one of the biggest in the nation. But being big goes beyond our size. Big is diverse and inclusive. Big is promising and powerful. Big attracts the brightest minds and boldest opportunities. And for our staff that means bigger challenges to tackle, bigger opportunities to grow and bigger rewards beyond a paycheck.
We’re seeking qualified individuals with the passion and talent to help UCF Advancement fulfill its mission of encouraging, stewarding and celebrating charitable gifts from alumni, friends and partners in order to transform lives through philanthropy. We’re growing fast, and new positions open all the time.
‘It’s Not About the Money, It’s About What the Money Does’
It’s no exaggeration when I say that when you come to work for us, you’re joining one of the hardest working teams at UCF. I continue to be in awe of how much our team has accomplished since I joined just a few years ago. And that hard work pays off.
UCF Advancement’s leadership consists of a team of professionals with significant principal gifts, alumni relations, communications and campaign expertise. The team is committed to achieving its $500 million goal for UCF while building an operation which embraces and defines industry best practices. We are committed to mentoring the next generation of talented professionals and growing a diverse advancement operation.
I want to underscore how important each advancement team member is to this organization, to the IGNITE campaign, and to the future of the university. And, as much as the dollar goals are top of mind at all times, we can’t lose sight of the fact that it’s not about the money, but what the money does.
We look forward to the impact you will have on Knight Nation!
