Support Diversity and Inclusion at UCF

The Dr. Valarie Greene King Memorial Fund

The Dr. Valarie Greene King Memorial Fund will support the Leadership Empowerment Program (LEP) that is sponsored annually by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Dr. King designed the LEP and led it every year for nearly two decades. LEP has been nationally recognized and replicated by colleges and universities around the country; it is certainly a worthy memorial to honor Dr. King’s many contributions to UCF, Florida, and the nation.
