USF's Second President, Cecil Mackey, Dies at 89

Maurice Cecil Mackey, Jr., PhD, the second president of the University of South Florida, died last week at the age of 89. Mackey, who served as president from 1971-1976, came to USF at a crucial time in the university’s history. In a 2004 interview for USF’s Historical Archives, Mackey said a number of things attracted him to the university, including the fact that USF was the first university to be created in the 20th century.

New Satellite Data Confirm Accelerated Sea Level Rise

25 years of satellite data prove climate models are correct in predicting that sea levels will rise at an increasing rate. USF College of Marine Science Associate Dean and Professor, Gary Mitchum, PhD, is part of team of researchers that found since 1993, ocean waters have moved up the shore by almost one millimeter per decade. That’s on top of the three millimeter steady annual increase. This acceleration means we’ll gain an additional millimeter per year for each of the coming decades, potentially doubling what would happen to the sea level by 2100 if the rate of increase was constant.
