Florida universities seek a few good trustees
The Florida Board of Governors has extended its deadline for applicants to submit their interest in serving as trustees for four universities, the University of South Florida, Florida A&M, Florida International and the University of Central Florida. Materials must be received by 5 p.m. March 4.
The University of South Florida’s vacancy is for a term ending January 6, 2016. The vacancies at FAMU, FIU and UCF are each for a term ending January 6, 2018.
Trustees oversee policy and budgets at their universities. They do not need to be Florida residents to serve. "The Board of Governors is looking for dynamic and diverse individuals who are interested in higher education, passionate about assisting our institutions and committed to working toward the goals of the State University System," said Morteza "Mori" Hosseini, Chair of the Board of Governors' Trustee Nominating Committee.
More details are available on the university system website.
