The UCF Creed

This year marks the 15th Anniversary of the UCF Creed. The UCF Creed was created in 2001, out of an initiative from President Hitt. The UCF Creed consists of five tenets; Integrity, Scholarship, Community, Creativity, and Excellence. In honor of the 15th Anniversary, UCF will be celebrating a different tenet of the Creed each month.

September’s tenet is Creativity; our students’ creativity will be on display on the Creed Art Wall in the John C. Hitt Library on September 8, 2016 from 2-5pm.

Students can showcase their creativity by entering the 2016 Creed Art Contest: Keep the Creed – Pass It On!. Their original 2-D or 3-D Artwork, which represents one of the five tenets of the UCF Creed, are due November 4th, 2016. More information may be found at:

Integrity, scholarship, community, creativity, and excellence are the core values that guide our conduct, performance, and decisions.
