‘We have to find a way’: UCF students call for more diversity in physical education

UCF is asking students to join the #IUPIPhysicalEd controversy, after it emerged students at the school were denied access to an online curriculum.

Students at the university have been calling for more female instructors and more diversity on campus.

They say the university needs to diversify its physical education program and hire more female physical educators.

In the statement issued Thursday, UCF said the school “cannot afford to continue to rely on an antiquated curriculum” and is “deeply concerned” about the ongoing controversy.

“We must find a new way to educate our students, faculty, staff and community in the 21st century.

Diversity and inclusion are critical to building a stronger, more inclusive environment,” the statement reads.
