UCF founding President Charles Millican created the council in 1977, and membership is one of UCF’s most significant student honors. The council’s 35 members
  • act as a student advisory group to the president,
  • interact with President Hitt and UCF First Lady Martha Hitt, along with other campus and community leaders,
  • engage in professional development activities designed to enhance their skills and abilities,
  • provide campus tours,
  • host school functions on campus and off,
  • and speak to college students, high school students, alumni, and others about UCF.
Each year, council members contribute thousands of service hours to the university.

To qualify for membership, candidates must be degree-seeking juniors, seniors, or graduate students with a 3.0 grade point average or better. They also must be well-rounded, demonstrating excellence through leadership, academics, extracurricular activities, and service to the university and the community.

Each spring, an advisory committee of faculty, staff, and students select the council members for the next school year. Candidates submit an application, provide at least two references, and present themselves to the committee for an interview.

The council is directed by the Office of the President and the Office of Constituent Relations. For more about the President’s Leadership Council, see the council website.
