Please plan to stop by for refreshments and fellowship, and to help us honor Dr. McGuire.

Dr. McGuire began his career at what was then Florida Technological University in 1972. He came to us from the Somerset County Guidance Center in New Jersey, where he served as a Post-doctoral Senior Psychologist. As a new faculty member Dr. McGuire helped found the Clinical Psychology Master’s program, one of UCF’s first graduate programs. He individually trained and mentored many of the current leaders of the mental health community in Orlando. He became nationally known during this period by research that helped to understand ethical decision making in the clinical profession and the role of confidentiality as a key component of the therapeutic relationship. Dr. McGuire served as chair of Psychology for eight years. In 2003, he was named an Associate Dean in the College of Arts & Sciences. He played a key role in setting up the College of Sciences when it was formed, and was responsible for many of its successes. His service at UCF spans the terms of all four UCF presidents, and growth from under 2,000 to nearly 60,000 students.

Please join us to celebrate Dr. McGuire’s years of achievement and generous contribution to the university, and to wish him well in retirement.
