UCF Center for Community Schools
The UCF Center for Community Schools is located at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando.

This partnership-driven model features collaborative governance among four or more core partners, which must include a school district, a nonprofit, a healthcare provider, and a university or college. The center currently oversees the development of 26 Community Partnership School sites and a university-based process to certify each school’s required adherence to the model.
