I am excited about becoming the fifth permanent president of the University of North Florida and looking forward to working with faculty, staff and the community as we build a stronger institution. Our reputation for academic excellence is growing. Our 440 full-time faculty help nearly 14,000 students to become the future workforce for the First Coast and are active participants in the civic life of our community.
UNF offers 74 undergraduate and graduate degree programs with students attending classes on our beautiful 1,300-acre campus. UNF soon will open a new Science and Engineering Building and is starting on the expansion of the Thomas G. Carpenter Library.
UNF’s highly successful capital campaign, Access to Excellence, has raised more than $103 million in private donations to support student scholarships and to enhance the University’s academic and building programs.
The success of this campaign is indicative of the support UNF enjoys in the community and a major reason why I am proud to lead this University as it grows and enhances its reputation for excellence.
