A Message from USF System President Judy Genshaft
Dear University of South Florida System Community:
I know each of us shares in the relief that the nation’s longest and most controversial campaign season is over, and it is my sincere hope that healing can now take place and we can move forward once again as a unified country.
Whether or not you agreed with the outcome, the University of South Florida System remains a special place where respectful expression of one’s beliefs is encouraged. Public universities, and particularly USF, play an integral role in moving our nation forward as a united – yet diverse – community.
University of South Florida was founded with the values of honoring and respecting each other’s diversity, ideas and beliefs. We serve as a model where all can share our perspectives in a civil, safe and positive manner. It is from enlightened and free exchange of ideas that the next experiment, discovery, and societal advance springs forth.
I am proud of USF’s commitment to improving the lives of others, wherever and whenever we can. Let us continue to celebrate the ideals and values that have made the University of South Florida the special place it is today and will continue to be for many more tomorrows.
President, University of South Florida System
