State of the University: Mori Hosseini

Board of Trustees Chair Mori Hosseini
August 25, 2022

Thank you, Dr. Phalin, for the invitation today and for the commitment to the university that you’ve already shown during your first months as a member of the Board of Trustees.

First, I can’t talk about the stature of this great university without acknowledging the transformational leadership of President Fuchs. I was Chair of the Board of Governors when the UF search committee was considering the provost from Cornell to be the 12th president of this place. I didn’t know Kent and had no idea what to expect.
