2012 FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT

Philanthropy speaks to the human quality of generosity, and informs and inspires our lives. We are fortunate to work in a field where lives are impacted because others step up and make a difference. Giving back is powerful and inspiring because it is voluntary. Through the goodness of our hearts, through our desire to see a better world, through our need to connect with others, we come together to improve the quality of life for as many people as we can. Thank you to the thousands of donors who make an impact on our campus and in the lives of our Knights. This is their story, In Their Words. 2 0 1 2

“Think about what moves you—what you’re passionate about.” —Duane De Freese

Planning for Florida’s Future “AT NO TIME IN OUR NATION’S HISTORY has support for

educational and conservation research been more important to the university, to the environment and to the state of Florida,” says Duane De Freese. For more than 30 years, De Freese has championed commonsense conservation in Florida, blending environmental, economic and social considerations into a vision for the state’s future. He’s at the center of conversations on nature-based tourism, sea turtle research, sea level rise and climate change. De Freese applies the same big-picture thinking to philanthropy. He has made plans to leave $100,000 in an estate gift to support sea turtle research in UCF’s biology department.

When people find out that De Freese has arranged an estate gift, they are often surprised. “What is remarkable is that you don’t need to have personal financial wealth to make an estate gift,” De Freese says. “What you need to do is plan in advance. Think about what moves you—what you’re passionate about.” For De Freese, his passion is supporting a program that has global conservation significance. “It was a very easy decision from a business standpoint, but also a heartfelt goal to do something important.” “We are losing funding on the federal, state and local levels,” he continues. “Programs that are internationally and globally important are struggling to make ends meet. The need is now.”

Diane Wink was named the Hugh F. and Jeannette G. McKean Endowed Chair in Nursing.


2012 FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT

“Through the generosity of donors, endowed chairs offer long-term financial stability above and beyond salary.” —Tony Waldrop, Provost

Best Seat in the House DEDICATED TEACHERS CREATE KNOWLEDGE,

inspiring students and preparing them for success in an increasingly competitive global economy. Faculty members also help drive a university’s reputation. As UCF strives to achieve even greater success, it is essential to offer higher salaries, research stipends, scholarship funding and endowed chair positions to attract, retain and honor the top researchers and distinguished teachers who can help the university fulfill its educational and research goals. “Through the generosity of donors, endowed chairs offer longterm financial stability above and beyond salary to support teaching, research and service activities, and carry prestige and honor for the chair holders and their namesakes,” says Tony

Waldrop, provost and executive vice president of UCF and professor of biomedical sciences. Diane Wink is the newly named Hugh F. and Jeannette G. McKean Endowed Chair in Nursing, thanks to a gift from the Elizabeth Morse Genius Foundation. The McKeans were committed to enriching the lives of others and were longtime supporters of health care in Central Florida. As endowed chair holder, Wink will further her work as a nationally recognized nurse educator and scholar, committed to maintaining the quality of nursing care. “We are fortunate to have a valued and respected professor of national stature to occupy this new endowed chair at UCF,” says UCF President John C. Hitt.

“Community Nursing Coalitions help our students understand the resources in the community and the opportunities to support wellness and disease prevention.” —Jean Leuner, College of Nursing Dean

Jump Into a Healthy Life THE UCF COLLEGE OF NURSING has a long-standing history of being

community focused. All baccalaureate and many graduate students are assigned to Community Nursing Coalitions (CNC) where they deliver meals to those in need; screen elementary school children for height, weight and obesity risks; provide immunizations to middle school students; teach children with asthma how to manage the disease; and teach tobacco use prevention to children.

Now helping in 16 medically underserved communities in Central Florida, nursing students are aided in their work by donors like BJ’s Charitable Foundation and the VNA Foundation. The mission of BJ’s Charitable Foundation is to enhance and enrich community programs that primarily benefit children and families. Since 2005, BJ’s has given more than $15 million to 1,600-plus community organizations in the 15 states where BJ’s clubs are located. Its donation of $5,000 to the CNC provides badly needed supplies ranging from jump ropes to nutritional teaching aids. The VNA Foundation made a five-year commitment of $5,000 per year to fund and name the Winter Park Community Nurse Coalition in honor of founding board member Armand Barone, who was actively involved in community outreach efforts. “The VNA Foundation is a proud supporter and funder of the CNC program. It benefits the community and many of the same organizations we support,” says Robert Wheeler, treasurer and board member of the VNA Foundation.

“I have been thinking how the power of minds can be brought together for intensifying the benefit to society now and in the future. The world today is integrally connected.” —Abdul Kalam, former President of India

Global Perspectives THE OFFICE OF GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES was established

right). Kalam addressed more than 700 students, faculty, staff and community members on topics ranging from harnessing solar energy and sustainable development to a world free from war.

Led by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, educator and commentator, John Bersia ’77, UCF’s global lens was widened in 2011 by a transformational gift to establish a center devoted to the study of India. In service to UCF students, faculty and the public, the center will facilitate study and awareness on issues of mutual interest to India and the United States. Public discussions involving distinguished visitors and world leaders will encourage scholarship and research, including the provision of needed fellowship opportunities for students.

The India Center’s main source of support comes from The India Group, an alliance of prominent business and professional leaders who have made a commitment of $10 million to provide annual support and to permanently endow the center’s work.

in 2001 to advance UCF’s international focus and build Central Florida’s awareness and connections to the global community.

Jointly administered by the Department of Political Science and the Office of Global Perspectives, the India Center has already brought distinguished writers and scholars to UCF. Recent guests have included Arun Gandhi, peace activist and grandson of Mahatma Gandhi; Anupama Rao, Indian author and scholar; and Abdul Kalam, India’s 11th president (pictured

The UCF Foundation gratefully acknowledges The India Group members, including Braham Aggarwal, Dr. Gopal Basisht, Anil Deshpande, Dr. Pradipkumar Jamnadas, Sharad Mehta, Arvind Nandu, Tino Patel, Dr. Jogi Pattisapu, Dr. Yash Sachdev, and Mike Shah. Additional support is provided by The Anil and Chitra Deshpande India Program Endowed Fund and the India Studies Fund of the Global Connection Foundation.

Family members established the Marlie Kai Dodson UCF Oncology Nursing Endowed Scholarship to honor Marlie and support future caregivers.


2012 FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT

“She was a complete ray of sunshine.” —April Agnew ’97

Shining Spirit “MARLIE CARED SO MUCH about everybody. We established

this scholarship to remember her and support those who have her giving spirit,” says Marlie’s mom, Sarah Dodson ’01. Before she lost her lifelong battle with cancer, Marlie Kai Dodson dreamed of the day when she could go to UCF and study nursing. And while she was in treatment at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, her joyful spirit touched many UCFtrained nurses who assisted in her care. “Some even brought her gifts at the end of their shifts,” Sarah recalls.

“She was a complete ray of sunshine,” says aunt April Agnew ’97. Marlie’s hopes and aspirations were as big as the smile that warmed the hearts of her devoted Knight family, which includes uncle Rob Agnew ’99, and aunts Jennifer Agnew ’94 and Rebecca Dodson ’11.

The family established the Marlie Kai Dodson UCF Oncology Nursing Endowed Scholarship to support future caregivers. Once fully funded, it will be available to any nursing student who is committed to making an impact on others’ lives, just as Marlie did. Inspired by her daughter’s spirited dreams of becoming a UCF cheerleader as well as a nurse, Sarah hopes to establish an additional scholarship in cheerleading. “I don’t know if there are any cheerleading nurses at UCF, but Marlie may well have been one of the first,” says Sarah. Through these very special scholarships, a little girl who cared deeply about others will get to help more people than she could have ever imagined.


In Their Words

“When we lose our ability to communicate, we have lost so much of who we are.” —Janet Whiteside, Aphasia House Director

There’s No Place Like Home PHOTOS LINE THE WALLS OF UCF’S APHASIA HOUSE.

Each has been taken by someone who suffers from aphasia— a loss of speech resulting from a neurological injury like a stroke—and is a snapshot into a life that has been transformed by this disabling condition. An anonymous donation of $25,000 created a home away from home for those who need intensive speech therapy. It was a dream come true for Janet Whiteside, chair of the Board of Clinical Educators at the UCF Communication Disorders Clinic and director of Aphasia House. Whiteside has wanted to create a home therapy environment for clients with aphasia since she was in graduate school, where she witnessed people ignoring those who couldn’t speak. “I will never forget walking up and down the hallways, hearing the silence and seeing so many people whom nobody was stopping to say hello to,” she says. That was when she decided she wanted to work with adults who have a speech loss and somehow make a difference in their lives.

The program she now runs is intense and structured—with UCF student clinicians working daily with clients intent on regaining word-finding skills and speech intelligibility. The atmosphere feels more homey than clinical. The mood is lively and jubilant despite the challenges clients face. Clients come from all walks of life and all over the country. As student clinician Justin Leblanc notes, they have one very important thing in common—resiliency. Leblanc says, “This experience has taught me about the strength of the human spirit; seeing how people respond to what is probably the biggest challenge of their lives.” At the end of each six-week session, student clinicians say goodbye to the small group of clients they know like family. They celebrate the milestone with a graduation party that is often bittersweet—the end of one chapter, but the beginning of a new story that their clients may now be able to tell for themselves.

Lisa Dieker is a professor and Lockheed Martin Eminent Scholar for the Department of Child, Family and Community Sciences in the College of Education.


2012 FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT

“Ask me to name the first great teacher in my own life, and it takes me right back to second grade.” —Lisa Dieker, College of Education

Forward Thinking LISA DIEKER WILL TELL YOU that her entire family has been blessed by great teachers. At a very early age, she knew she wanted to be one of them.

As she notes, “That’s one of the wonderful things about this new technology—we’re just beginning to scratch the surface of what it can do.”

Ask her to name the first great teacher in her life, and it takes her right back to second grade. She still remembers Mrs. Queener and how supportive she was during a difficult time for Dieker’s family. “I’ll never forget her or any of the wonderful teachers I’ve encountered; each of them has made a profound difference in my own teaching career and on the students I’ve been privileged to teach over the years.”

Developed here at UCF, the TLE TeachLivE™ Lab is an innovative, mixed-reality teaching environment. In the traditional teacher education model, real students help prospective and novice teachers become more effective educators. But in the virtual environment, teachers can practice their skills without impacting real students. Teachers enter a simulated middle school classroom, where the room is real, but the students are digital avatars—controlled by real trainers— who are made to act like typical (or atypical) preteens. Dieker says that the digital experience is incredibly lifelike and undeniably effective.

When Dieker learned that UCF’s TLE TeachLivE™ program was about to receive a $1.5 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, it occurred to her that teaching and philanthropy have much in common: Both seek to expand opportunities for others. And, teachers and philanthropists touch others’ lives in ways we may never know—just as, all these years later, Dieker is still inspired by the kindness of that second-grade teacher. The impact of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant on UCF’s TLE TeachLiveE™ program will ripple outward in countless directions, not all of which Dieker or her colleagues at the College of Education can yet anticipate.

The grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will extend the reach of the TLE TeachLivE™ program beyond the 10 campuses with which UCF is now partnering, and enhance the technology itself. Dieker is enthusiastic about the future, which she believes is all about delivering a better education and creating great teachers—who, like generous philanthropists, are making this a better world for all.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the donors who believe in the university’s vision. I am proud to now stand with them.” —Lauren Murphy ’12

A Circle of Giving LAUREN MURPHY ’12 GIVES BACK to UCF because she wants to create a happily ever after for every deserving student. Her road to college was rocky, and without the assistance of the scholarship support she received as an out-of-state National Merit Scholar, she doubts she could have afforded college. “But the minute I got to UCF, I knew I had found a new home,” she remembers.

At The Burnett Honors College, she became a student leader and mentor. Thanks to her experiences at the college, she was able to land a civil engineering internship in her junior year at Walt Disney World for the Fantasyland expansion. After graduation, Lauren became a full-time Disney Imagineer. Within weeks of graduating, she also became a UCF donor by making a gift to the Emerging Leader Scholarship Fund in The Burnett Honors College. Her donation enrolls her in the President’s Circle—a special group of supporters who make annual gifts of $1,000 or more to enrich academic programs at UCF. Murphy is also one of the many students who benefited from the generosity of that same group of donors last year. Their gifts have a significant impact on the quality of programs and the educational experiences of current and future Knights.

“I remember loving every class I took— music theory, music performance, fine arts and graphic arts. I was probably the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life.” —Jim Hopes

The Art and Heart of Jim Hopes WHEN HE WAS AN UNDERGRAD majoring in art and

music, Jim Hopes thought he could become anything. “I remember loving every class I took—music theory, music performance, fine arts and graphic arts. I was probably the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life.” However, at the urging of family and friends who told him he would never make any money as an artist, Hopes changed his focus to business. He successfully headed up a division of AOL and brought in almost half of the company’s new members in the organization’s heyday. It was a position that allowed him many opportunities—meeting George W. Bush, Michael Dell and Steve Jobs among them. That was before he moved to Central Florida where he was able to retire early and focus on art and philanthropy. “When I left the business world, I spent about three months trying to figure out how I wanted to spend the next 20 years. I thought of all the people who I admired in the world, and they all tend to do things for other people, and they make the world a little bit of a better place because of what they’ve chosen to do. So, I decided that’s the person I want to be.” And that’s the person he became. Hopes never lost his passion for art. In 2009, he partnered with the UCF College of Arts and Humanities and established an art scholarship program that awards five $2,000 scholarships in the areas of painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, photography, video, digital media or animation. In its fourth year, the scholarship will be increased by another $1,000, allowing the committee to award larger scholarships of $3,000.

“I thought the best way to help art is to get involved with a scholarship program where I can help other students who might be in a similar position that I was in, where all the forces around them are telling them it’s a tough life, that you can’t make it,” Hopes says. Including his sponsorship of a recent college event and a public art project in the works, Hopes has contributed more than $50,000 in support of the arts at UCF. In addition to his philanthropic gifts, Hopes also serves on the UCF Foundation Board of Directors. “I don’t think our endowment is as big as our future, so I thought [serving on the board] was a terrific opportunity to bring in some new ideas and new approaches,” he explains. “We’re now the second-largest university in the country, but our endowment hasn’t grown as fast as the university has. I think I can have a big impact there.” At the heart of things, it’s not really about the money for Hopes. It’s personal. What he values most about giving to UCF and serving on the board is getting to meet students face to face. He compares that feeling to his AOL days, when his job was to bring six to eight million new members to the Internet a year, which he did, year after year. But, he never got to meet those members. They were only numbers. “This is different,” he says. “I can put the philanthropy to work and actually meet the students who receive the scholarships, hear their stories, see their lives in front of them—all the excitement about what they’re going to do with their lives. And I know I’ve had an impact on them.”

“UCF has so many resources for tutoring and academic advising that there’s no excuse not to do well.” —Kayli Keough ’12

Scoring Higher BASKETBALL FORWARD KAYLI KEOUGH ’12 has never taken the easy way out. While working on her second UCF degree and preparing for law school, she’s received great advice from her coaches: Make sure school comes first.

Keough joins the more than 500 UCF student-athletes who excel in competition and in the classroom. During the last five years: • 1,048 student-athletes were named to the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll—the most of any institution during that time • The federal graduation student-athletes’ rate has increased 17 points • The GPA of teams has exceeded 3.0 in each academic term The new Wayne Densch Center for Student-Athlete Leadership will consolidate classroom space, academic and career advising, and tutoring services to help studentathletes succeed on and off the field. A longtime supporter of UCF Athletics, the late Wayne Densch and the Wayne M. Densch Charitable Trust began a relationship with UCF in 1986 with the renaming of two Athletics Department buildings as the Wayne Densch Center I and II. In 2003, UCF opened a new Wayne Densch Sports Center, which currently serves as home to the UCF football program and houses the Athletics Department’s main sports medicine facility and strength conditioning centers.

“We are interested in students who have financial need and who might not otherwise go to college. DirectConnect to UCF is a perfect fit for us.”—Malcolm Macleod, Johnson Scholarship Foundation President

Making the Connection “LAST YEAR, THE DIRECTCONNECT TO UCF PROGRAM

guaranteed access to a UCF baccalaureate degree for 5,500 hard-working associate degree graduates from our consortium community and state colleges,” says UCF President John C. Hitt. “That’s the success that partnerships create.” The DirectConnect to UCF partnership is designed to help students transition from community and state colleges in Florida to the University of Central Florida. The program guarantees admission to students who have earned their associate’s degrees from partner colleges and meet academic requirements. The Johnson Scholarship Foundation provided a $1.5 million challenge grant to support this invaluable partnership. This

unprecedented grant allows five educational institutions to work together to raise funds and award scholarships. It is a partnership driven by a shared passion for student success. “We are interested in students who have financial need and who might not otherwise go to college. DirectConnect to UCF is a perfect fit for us,” says Malcolm Macleod, president of the Johnson Scholarship Foundation. Every gift raised by DirectConnect to UCF partners is matched dollar-for-dollar by the Johnson Scholarship Foundation. Once fully funded, $4 million in new scholarship support will be available for Johnson Scholars—students chosen based on financial need, academic standing and proficiency for leadership and scholastic success.

Left to right: Phyllis Klock, Mike Manglardi and Judy Albertson

“Serving my alma mater in a leadership capacity has been a privilege—one that has allowed me the opportunity to tell as many people who are willing to listen about all the good things that happen here.” —Mike Manglardi ’84, immediate past chair, UCF Foundation Board of Directors

“Our board is dedicated to the task of building UCF’s endowment for a future that is even more promising than its past. It’s an honor and a duty we share to support and promote our students, faculty, programs, facilities and alumni.” —Judy Albertson, chair, UCF Foundation Board of Directors

“Giving is something we celebrate in all its forms. From giftsin-kind to gifts of time to major gifts that propel this university forward, we have many reasons to celebrate. We are grateful to the thousands of alumni, corporations, foundations and friends who share our vision for an even better UCF.” —Phyllis Klock, vice chair, UCF Foundation Board of Directors


In Their Words

2012 FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT

“If there is anything I have learned in 20 years, it is that our greatest danger is not to dream too large, but to dream too small. At UCF, we dream big. Our greatest limitations are those we place on ourselves.” —UCF President John C. Hitt


In Their Words

The UCF Foundation encourages, stewards and celebrates charitable contributions from alumni and friends to support the University of Central Florida.
