Path to Preeminence


President Judy Genshaft's address focused on USF's "Path to Preeminence," an effort designed to enhance quality across all organizational levels, to move USF closer to being recognized as a "Preeminent" university in the State of Florida and to further position USF for membership in the Association of American Universities. In June, USF was designated as the first "Emerging Preeminent" university in Florida, providing an additional $5 million in state funding and strengthening the institution's reputation. Genshaft has set a goal for USF to achieve full Preeminent status by 2018.
