Research 2020 – 2021 Annual Report

Grad Fair

From The Vice President Of Research


Friends,

UCF researchers have been helping solve local, national, and international problems and enriching our human experience since the universityís inception.

It was a three-time UCF graduate who helped create one of the vaccines against COVID. And while UCF didnít fly aboard the rocket that took the first non-astronauts into space, our scientists and engineers are working with commercial companies and government agencies to pioneer the tools we need to make sure we can travel safely and eventually live on other planets.

In the 2020-2021 Office of Research Annual Report, you will find 2020 statistics broken down in all sorts of ways and data from fiscal 2021. You also will read about some inspiring research thatís changing the world. 

What you wonít find is how the Office of Research facilitates faculty and student research. This includes research administration ñ the process needed to submit proposals and, when awarded, the process for setting up grants and contracts to fund projects (and making sure we actually get paid for our work). It also includes ensuring compliance with local, state, and federal regulations. My office also finds ways to fund needs, such as big equipment, that will enhance our research enterprise. We work with lawyers, IP experts, and contract specialists to ensure researchers can pursue their passions, wherever those might take them. We also provide faculty and leadership recommendations for policies and areas of opportunity for further advancement.

As we look to become Americaís leading public metropolitan research university, I want to take a moment to share how far weíve come since I arrived five years ago. 

All these changes could not have been possible without a team of more than 100 unsung heroes in my office and your colleges who support research administration operations every day. I wanted to give them a shout-out for helping us continue to progress toward greatness. They play a pivotal role in the successes we share in this report.

Together we have all achieved much, and we are primed for even greater success. 

Cordially,

Liz
