TAMPA, Fla. — The University of South Florida has named its choice for the school’s next president.
On Friday, the school’s board of trustees voted unanimously to appoint Dr. Steve Currall.
Currall most recently served as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs for Southern Methodist University.
The Florida Board of Governors must confirm president-elect Currall.
Confirmation will take place Thursday, March 28 during a meeting in Tallahassee.
In September, current USF President Judy Genshaft announced her retirement after 18 years of service. Her retirement is effective on July 1, 2019.
If confirmed, Curall will be the university's seventh president.
