Event description

Description

After conducting a national search in 2015, the University of Central Florida selected Pamela S. Carroll as its new dean of the College of Education and Human Performance. In 2018, that college was dissolved and a new College of Community Innovation and Education (CCIE) was formed. CCIE is composed not only of the programs found in traditional education colleges but also programs in public administration, emergency management, urban and regional planning, legal studies, criminal justice and health management and informatics. Dean Carroll was named to head CCIE. At the same time, it was announced that CCIE would be the college anchor of UCF’s new downtown campus.

Prior to coming to UCF, she was at Oklahoma State University, where she has served as dean and director of professional education and the Stella V. Anderson Endowed Professor of Education for three years.

Dean Carroll is not a newcomer to Florida. She was associate dean for academic affairs in the College of Education at Florida State University and a faculty member there for 21 years, also serving in various administrative roles, including department chair and program coordinator. Carroll specializes in teacher education and adolescent and young-adult literature. She received her doctoral degree in education from Auburn University.

UCF Downtown, in partnership with Valencia College, will bring 7,700 students to live, learn and work in downtown Orlando, creating a game-changing campus in the heart of our city. Opened in August 2019, the project kick-starts Orlando’s $1 billion public-private Creative Village. It will increase access for students, provide pathways into high-demand career fields, and foster collaboration with our neighbors in meaningful ways.

On Sept 5, we heard Mayor Dyer discuss the city’s view of the Creative Village and other development downtown. Today we will hear Dean Carroll’s vision for the campus.

Please join me in giving a warm Rotary welcome to Dean Pamela Carroll, Dean of the UCF Downtown Campus.
