2017 Florida-Japan Summit


On January 18th, UCF proudly hosted the 2017 Florida-Japan Summit, with the presence of the Consul General, Ken Okaniwa, and other important government officials and partners. Florida Secretary of State, Ken Detzner was extremely impressed with UCF’s campus and International Hub.

During his opening remarks, he compassionately stated, “I am blown away. This (UCF) is a very very important asset for the state of Florida. It’s not only the facilities and the buildings, it’s the people I see walking around on this campus.” He also suggested that our UCF Global building should be named the “Academic Embassy” of Florida.”
