USF President steps down from the position after two years in power

University of South Florida (USF) President, Dr. Steve Currall announced on Monday that he will be stepping down from the post. Currall succeeded to the post in 2019 after long-term president Judy Genshaft retired.

“The demands of the president’s role are immense. The intensity of the past two years has put a strain on my health and my family. Therefore, after thoughtful reflection, I have decided to retire from the USF presidency to ensure that I preserve my health, as well as to spend more time with my wife, Cheyenne, and my 91-year-old father. “ He said in his resignation letter. 

He said that he has notified the USF Board of Trustees. “ I intend to retire from the presidency and, after some much-needed rest, devote my focus to serving in my role as a faculty member in the Muma College of Business. “ He further added. 

According to Fox13 News, for the first time in the school’s history, USF cracked the list of top 50 public universities. 

Currall is the 7th President of USF. His last day as President will be August 2.
