Partnership IV Ribbon Cutting


“The long-standing partnership between UCF and the U.S. military grew stronger today. Together, this research will contribute to our nation’s welfare and the safety and success of the men and women who defend our country.” – UCF President Dale Whittaker

Despite the cold weather, UCF President Dale Whittaker and George Cheros, CEO of the National Center for Simulation, along with members of the Army cut the ribbon on Jan. 28th to celebrate Partnership IV. This is the latest addition to the Partnership Complex, our nation’s epicenter for simulation and training-related research and development. The Ceremony boasted a number of speakers including UCF President Dale Whittaker, LT General James Richardson of the Army Futures Command, and NCS CEO George Cheros. David Smith, from the House of Representatives, also attended and received recognition. This acquisition will be the new home for the U.S. Army’s Synthetic Training Environment Cross Functional Team (STE-CFT), where they will work alongside the Institute for Simulation and Training, a part of UCF’s School of Modeling, Simulation & Training, to assist in developing new training technology.
