After 39 years of dedicated and excellent service to the University and community, Dr. Ida Cook is retiring from UCF.

Dr. Cook came to the university in 1976 when it was Florida Technical University under the tutelage of Dr. Charles Millican.  During those 39 years, she has been a faculty member in the department of sociology and stalwart advocate of UCF.

Throughout her time here, she has seen myriad changes; but more importantly, she has been an integral part of many of them.  In addition to enriching the lives of her students, Dr. Cook served as Faculty Senate Chair and Vice Chair, and was a regular member on numerous University-level committees.  Through these efforts, Dr. Cook has effectively improved the teaching, research, and service environment for all faculty at UCF.

Please join us as we congratulate Dr. Cook for her years of service to UCF and offer good wishes for her future adventures (which will probably involve the beach!).
