Gov. Crist lauds Valencia/UCF shared classroom building

Gov. Charlie Crist was among a host of elected officials and leaders in higher education at today’s ribbon-cutting for the $23 million University Center, a classroom building shared by UCF and Valencia Community College on Valencia’s West Campus.

Through partnerships like the one shared by UCF and Valencia, the state wants to give students “every possible avenue of opportunity to acheive what they want to achieve,” Crist told a crowd of more than 100.

The 100,000-square foot building is the largest on campus. UCF and Valencia split the cost.

UCF offers a variety of degree programs that students can complete in their entirety at the University Center. That eliminates the need for students who live and work in west Orange County to make the trek to UCF’s main campus in east Orlando.
