Covid Policy – Updated November 2022 – Informed Consent Form_Nov 2022
At the November 14 meeting of the University Club Executive Board, the Board voted to amend the Club COVID-19 Policy as follows:
As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, the Board has decided to bring the Club into conformity with other local venues by rescinding the remaining restrictions on attendance by unvaccinated members. However, the Board also recognizes that COVID-19 remains a serious threat to our members. We will continue to recommend members monitor transmission levels and take appropriate precautions, including masking as necessary for their individual risk level per CDC guidelines.
As we take this step toward greater normalization, the Board recognizes a duty to be transparent about the risks of dispensing with masks indoors. To that end, we have added the Risk Assessment to our website to inform your choice. You can view it on our website home page at www.uclubwp.org. To assess your individual risk, members can also check the CDC Transmission Levels at https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view?list_select_state=Florida&data-type=Risk. There, you can select your county of interest and select “Transmission Level” under “Data Type” to determine the prevalence of the disease in our area.”
Nestled among the moss-laden oaks and tropical foliage of beautiful Winter Park is a Mediterranean-style building that turns heads. Step inside this James Gamble Rogers showplace, which is on the Historic Register of Winter Park Buildings, and you not only sense that you are a part of a unique tradition, but that this is a unique place for the nearly 500 people who share a common love of intellectual discovery, culture, fellowship, and social occasions.
Scenic Winter Park is the home of the University Club. It is not affiliated with any college or university, and our members live throughout the central Florida area (fewer than half of our members actually live in Winter Park). They range from educators, physicians, lawyers, authors, and judges to journalists, nurses, business leaders, and entrepreneurs, to name just a few.
Established in 1934 as a forum where people of diverse business, professional, socioeconomic, and academic backgrounds could meet and exchange information, ideas, and experiences, the Club cultivates a broad range of cultural, scientific, historic, and philanthropic interests through presentations, speakers, seminars, and group activities.

Quote from commentator Chris Jepson of the Winter Park Observer: “I like to promote the Winter Park University Club (WPUC) because I respect the idea of a place that promotes the intellectual pursuit of ideas in a collegial atmosphere. If you’ve a mind that needs/wants exercise, I recommend the WPUC. It’s affordable. It’s available. It’s an appropriate place to invest your mind and time.”
Check us out! We will welcome you with open arms and an open mind.
The University Club of Winter Park was established as an organization where educational and cultural activities could be pursued and where ideas would be explored and challenged. You can get a good idea of the scope of current activities by clicking on the tab to read this month’s Club Times.
The Club was founded by retired college faculty members, clergymen, lawyers, physicians, and others of similar education and background, in order to hold regular meetings for discussion and fellowship. These founders wanted an organization different from many other university clubs. Business networking was not to be a component of the Club. Ideally, they wanted members to be on a first-name basis without the use of titles such as Doctor or General. They envisioned an egalitarian organization that would welcome people of all political and socioeconomic backgrounds.
