After spending 52 years in education, including more than 30 years at the University of Central Florida, Martha Lue Stewart is preparing for her next chapter: retirement. Being the first Black woman promoted to the rank of professor at UCF, Stewart has been instrumental in helping build a diverse and inclusive campus in Orlando from the beginning.

UCF has paid tribute with an amazing profile celebrating her years of service and her passion. “Martha Lue Stewart’s passion, deep commitment and tireless efforts created a legacy within the UCF, Central Florida and national communities,” says Mary Little, UCF professor and program coordinator in exceptional student education.

“UCF is our hometown university, which has taken giant leaps to become more inclusive and diverse,” Stewart says. “Here, you have an opportunity to blaze your own path, make new connections and dream bigger than you ever imagined.”
