The chairman of the Florida State University System Board of Governors will recommend that Vice Chancellor Jan Ignash serve as interim chancellor after Frank T. Brogan leaves on Sept. 30.
Brogan is leaving his post to become education chancellor for Pennsylvania.
Ignash, 59, who in addition to vice chancellor is the chief academic officer for the Board of Governors (BOG), is qualified, said Chairman Dean Colson in a statement.
"We are fortunate to have a seasoned academic leader on our team to fill in as interim chancellor while we conduct a national search," Colson said. "As chief academic officer, Dr. Ignash is already involved in the board's most important initiatives. ... She will help keep the train squarely on the tracks as we move forward on these and other critical system issues."
Ignash began her stint with the BOG in 2012 after serving as chief academic officer for the State of Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board. She has more than 30 years' experience in education at state and campus levels. She has a doctorate in education from the University of California Los Angeles and master's and bachelor's degrees from Michigan State University.
If the Board of Governors votes in favor of Colson's recommendation at its meeting Sept. 12, Ignash will take over on Oct. 1 when Brogan leaves. A search committee will be appointed to begin the process of hiring a permanent replacement for Brogan.
