We surveyed UCF Faculty for their opinions on a wide range of topics related to living and working in central Florida.  The following are some of the favorities.  If you would like to add your favorites to any of these topics, please let us know.

Expectant Mothers Parking Program
Faculty, staff and student permit holders in their third trimester of pregnancy may elect to reserve an expectant mother space in their permitted lot. For convenience a spot may be selected by the expectant mother to provide a location with closer proximity to her primary destination, within the parameters of her previously assigned lot. Should the permit holder need to make these arrangements prior to the third trimester due to a high risk or otherwise problematic condition, please contact us as soon as possible, so we can provide you with this service.  Parking application below, please fill out and email to

Lactation Privacy Rooms
The University of Central Florida recognizes the needs of new mothers by developing lactation privacy rooms on campus. These secure locations provide UCF mothers, whether students, staff or faculty, the ability to ease back into work or school without having to sacrifice the healthy practice of expressing their milk.

Work-Family Balance
Life in academia poses a unique set of challenges to women faculty who are trying to balance their career with family life, particularly if they have young children or are thinking of starting a family.  The work-family balance information provided here is aimed specifically at faculty members who are parents or considering becoming parents, interested in parental and medical leave, stopping the tenure clock, and additional resources for academic parents.  It was written by Dr. Beatriz Reyes-Foster and Dr. Joanna Mishtal during the Summer 2012 Faculty Development Conference.
