“We will create and maintain a beautiful campus that contributes to a sense of place, advances learning, and reflects our commitment to stewardship of human, financial and natural resources.”



Landscape & Natural Resources enriches the community by creating and maintaining an inviting and sustainable outdoor environment, providing high quality service for operational activities, and generating research and educational initiatives that guide conservation and stewardship of natural resources. We support the mission of UCF through a comprehensive outdoor laboratory that creates opportunities for relevant, experience-based learning, urban ecology research, and human connection with ecosystems and landscapes. Our inclusive program supports regional, state, national and global efforts to develop sustainable urban environments.
