Four UF cabinet-level searches are currently underway and expected to be filled within the coming months.
In January, Jane Adams, UF’s current vice president for University Relations, announced she would retire from UF in April after more than 13 years of exemplary service at the University of Florida. As part of the search to fill her role, President Fuchs has established two leadership positions—a Vice President for Strategic Communications and Marketing as well as a Vice President for Government and Community Relations.
In November, the university also announced searches to fill the Vice President and General Counsel as well as a Chief Diversity Officer and Senior Advisor to the President.
While the timeframe for each of these searches will vary slightly based on scheduling availability, in general, each will follow a similar process that includes preliminary interviews with the search committee as well as opportunities for top candidates to engage with the campus community and to interview with key stakeholders.
All of the positions will remain open until filled and the university hopes to have all positions filled and ready to go by the beginning of the fall semester, if not earlier.
Faculty and staff interested in engaging with any of the finalists should be on the lookout for announcements of campus visits in campus communications.
