The University of South Florida Board of Trustees unanimously voted Tuesday to name Rhea Law as the university’s president-elect.
Law, who has served as USF’s interim president since August, will replace the school’s former president Steven Currall. Currall announced last July plans to retire after just two years leading the institution.
Law’s appointment is pending confirmation by the Florida Board of Governors, who will likely approve the selection next Wednesday in Jacksonville.
Law will become the university’s eighth president and the first USF alum to lead the institution.
“When we link arms and work together, anything is possible,” Law said.
