Chancellor Search Process
With the departure of Chancellor Frank T. Brogan, who was chosen to lead Pennsylvania's university system, the Board of Governors of the State University System of Florida invites nominations and applications for the position of Chancellor. As the nation's second-largest university system, the State University System of Florida is comprised of 12 institutions—ranging from a nationally-ranked liberal arts college to top-ranked comprehensive research universities—serving 350,000 students.
The Board of Governors is the constitutionally created body that oversees the system, ensuring its well planned coordination and operation. The 17-member board appoints a Chancellor who serves as the chief executive and administrative officer of the system. The Chancellor reports directly to the Board and provides guidance and direction for the system and oversight of the board staff.
The winning candidate will be a proven leader with executive-level experience in education, government, business or non-profit settings. A track record of involvement in complex higher educational and political environments is essential to effectively serve the Board of Governors as the system continues on a path toward greater coordination, collaboration and prominence. The candidate must possess an ability to articulate the system's highest priorities, national trends affecting Florida, and challenges that the system may face. The candidate must be able to mobilize resources to address those issues at the highest levels. An advanced or terminal degree is preferred. A competitive salary will be negotiated.
