President's Welcome


Dear members of the USF community,

I am thrilled to join you as the seventh president of the University of South Florida!

The presidency is a position of stewardship and service -- service to you; to this outstanding university’s evolution as a global research institution; to the growing economic impact of the Tampa Bay region; and to the ideals of higher education that the USF community holds dear. 

I wish to share with you my vision and plans as we move ahead together. Please read more here. 

Thank you for your confidence. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together.


Steven C. Currall, Ph.D.
University of South Florida
