Distinguished Alumni


Every year, the UCF Alumni Association honors alumni who “Reach for the Stars” and bring distinction to themselves and the university through their professional achievement and their volunteer work with the university and the community. One outstanding Rosen College graduate is selected to receive this prestigious award, presented by the dean of Rosen College at the annual Black & Gold Gala.

Please take a moment to meet Rosen College’s distinguished alumni:
