Florida Poly President Randy Avent steps down

by The 100 Companies

Randy K. Avent is stepping down as president of Florida Polytechnic University after 10 years of leadership that included growing the school from its infancy into a leading STEM institution. Avent will serve through the 2023-24 academic year.

He was named the school’s inaugural president in 2014 and worked to shape Florida Poly into a model higher learning institution focused on STEM education. Avent led the school to its ABET accreditation in 2019 and its regional accreditation in 2017.

He plans to take a “brief sabbatical” before rejoining faculty. The Board of Trustees will begin a national search for his replacement.
