The USF Presidential Search Committee was created in August 2021, following the retirement of President Steven C. Currall.

The committee’s membership and process follows Board of Governors Regulation 1.002: Presidential Search and Selection. This deliberate process will ensure that the search is transparent, inclusive, thorough and aligned to the institutional goals that have guided USF's sustained trajectory of achievement.

The search committee will reach out to key stakeholder groups to define the position profile in alignment with USF’s mission and strategic aspirations; help market the position; and screen and interview the most qualified candidates, including providing opportunities for non-search committee members to interact with the finalists and provide feedback to the committee. The committee will then recommend an unranked list of finalists for ultimate consideration by the Board of Trustees.
