“UWF has soul. There’s a soul and a vibrancy about it that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. From the minute you step on that campus, you know you’re part of a team. You feel the care, you feel the love, and you know it’s a place where you belong.”
Ken Ford ’84
Dr. Ken Ford started out leading the classroom as a faculty member in the UWF Department of Computer Science. Today, he leads an innovative team of researchers and staff at IHMC. His job calls for him to stay ahead of the curve, always anticipating emerging areas of science, medicine and technology. He describes it as “an ongoing challenge, and one that I enjoy.” For Ford, challenges are part of the journey to new ideas and opportunities, and he’s made a career out of exploring the unknown.
