Associate Vice President of Distributed Learning: Thomas B. Cavanagh, Ph.D.

The Center for Distributed Learning (CDL) serves as the central agent for online learning at UCF, providing leadership in distance learning policies, strategies, and practices.

The Center supports and expands student access to education through the advanced application of instructional technology, data analysis, policy, and strategic planning for distributed learning programs and courses. We collaborate with internal and external partners to investigate, design, deliver, assess and support online learning through faculty development, course production, and research, which are all aligned with institutional goals.

The University of Central Florida is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award degrees at the associate, baccalaureate, master’s, specialist, and doctoral levels. Additional information regarding the university’s SACSCOC accreditation is provided by UCF’s Academic Program Quality unit within the Office of Academic Affairs.
