TAMPA, Fla. (FOX 13) - A new president for the University of South Florida could be announced in the coming days.
A 15-member search committee is scheduled to review the final list of applicants on Monday, and then select at least three to advance to the next stage of the process. The Board of Trustees hope to choose a new president by the end of the week.
That person will replace the current president, Judy Genshaft, who announced in September 2018 she will step down. Genshaft has led USF for nearly two decades, elevating its status in the state. USF's endowment has nearly doubled to $480 million, research money has tripled to $568 million, and enrollment is up 40 percent since she assumed her duties as president.
Her last day will be on July 1.
