A message from USF System President Judy Genshaft
Dear University of South Florida System:
As a University, we affirm that the personal safety and respect for the rights and opportunities of all our faculty, staff and students are of the utmost importance. Our USF community is founded on principles that foster an accessible, civil and safe environment where ideas and beliefs are freely exchanged, and from where the greatest of discoveries and knowledge can spring forth. Given the ongoing national discourse regarding immigration, we should all be reassured that our university stands resolutely behind these principles.
Even while we are closely studying the potential outcomes of the recent U.S. administration’s executive order regarding the citizens of seven specific foreign countries, our commitment to cultural and institutional diversity remains steadfast. We are absolutely committed to the success of all our faculty, staff and students, national and international, and always will be.Judy Genshaft
President, University of South Florida System
