Board of Governors to Meet Wednesday via Conference Call to Consider Appointment of Mark Rosenberg as Chancellor


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Board of Governors will meet via conference call at 9 a.m. EDT Wednesday to consider the Chancellor Search Committee’s recommendation of Mark Rosenberg to lead the State University System.

Last week the Chancellor Search Committee, after reviewing more than 20 applicants and nominees, reached unanimous agreement on recommending Dr. Rosenberg. He is currently provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at Florida International University, a post he has held since 1998.

Dr. Rosenberg is a 1971 graduate of Miami University of Ohio, where he was Phi Beta Kappa and Omicron Delta Kappa. He received his doctorate in political science and a graduate certificate in Latin American and Caribbean Studies from the University of Pittsburgh in 1976.

Dr. Rosenberg has written or co-edited seven books and a number of scholarly articles.

A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Dr. Rosenberg has testified numerous times before Congress and has served as a consultant to the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development. He has been a frequent source for the national and international media, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Miami Herald and Univisión, and he has served on the board of editors of Latin Trade and Florida Trend. He is a past member of the selection board of the Maria Moors Cabot Prize for Journalism based at Columbia University.

The Florida Board of Governors is the constitutional body created by voters in 2002 to oversee Florida public universities.
