Executive Branch

The Executive Branch (or Cabinet) is composed of student leaders appointed by the Student Body President each year. Our cabinet consists of a diverse group of students who share a passion for helping their university grow and making sure their peers receive the best education possible.

We sit on over thirty-five different University Councils where we represent every student and ensure that the student voice is heard loud and clear. The Executive Branch is also responsible for the development and maintenance of many significant student programs and services such as the KnightLYNX Program, Light Up UCF, Universal Knights, town hall meetings, educational programs, diversity education events, and many others.
