Gifts & Donations
CREOL, The College of Optics and Photonics has grown rapidly since it started more than 25 years ago, as a result of the
excellent education programs and the world-class research conducted by outstanding faculty and students in partnership with
many companies around the world. With many ambitious ideas planned for the near future, including the development of our
new B.S. Degree in Photonic Science and Engineering, we truly rely on the financial support of our dedicated
alumni, industrial partners, and community members to help maintain these initiatives. As we continue to grow our research
and educational programs, we need to develop our endowments for graduate fellowships, chaired professorships, and expanded
facilities and equipment for instructional and research labs.

donations, there are naming opportunities in the CREOL building for labs, seminar rooms, and classrooms that will give permanent
recognition to companies or individuals. To learn more about giving to UCF, please contact Kara Steiner, Assistant Director
