"Them in silence for hours not fully comprehending what was happening to us however was supremely grateful that we were all together. We tried to distract ourselves and the toddlers by going to the zoo and busch gardens which were almost empty. It was eerie. We weren't sure when everyone would be able to leave as the airports were closed when the day came for them to fly home. It was very hard to say goodbye. My three year old nephew was asking if the plane he was getting on was going to crash. All because of the news footage we had failed to shield him from. I have two children one born before nine. Eleven and one after. They will never know the difference. But i think about this often just like previous generations. Nine eleven was my pearl harbor and next to this pandemic the biggest historical event in my lifetime so far and every anniversary. I'm taking back to that. Beach rental and the memories of that week now back to my conversation with. Wsf's steve newborn. I've been trying to think back to what i was feeling at that time. And it's fear but it was just also the sense of almost like you were in a daze because the size and scale of these attacks it was you know the people the thing that people kept saying was it's like it's like a hollywood movie. It's like you know crashing planes into buildings and making them fall right. Nobody can believe it. I mean how could anybody do this to to us. You know you know the the remaining superpower after the end of the cold war. How could this happen in our backyard. At the in the center of our commerce center our national defense at the pentagon you know the probably what would have happened to that plane went down in. Pennsylvania was heading for another landmark in washington. Dc the capital was named pretty big target. He'd been in washington d. c. You can't miss it. It's the biggest building that in washington monument around. So yeah we were. We were just dumbfounded. How could this happen to this country and i to talk to people the next day and a common theme are heard was how could we be so hated in the world. That people would do this to us. your grant it. I went to So the next day. I was at usf tampa campus of international students. There and i specifically talked to some of them to get a kind of a different take and that was that was the theme. I heard from these From these people is how could we be so hated in the world. I wanna find out how we could be so hated in. The world of people would do this to us. That was a common theme out here in the next day. What was it like being on a college campus in the aftermath of these taxes you said with the school especially like usf that has so many international students yeah. The campus was closed. Shut down like like like everything else was shut down the following day on nine twelve and But you know a lot of students live there. It's got a big population. Students live in the dorms especially the international students who aren't from the area so there are a lot of people milling about. I saw a group passing out flyers. It was from the muslim student association. And they were basically trying to defend their honor. As as americans you know that okay so the terrorists quote unquote were likely muslims. Weather time The osama bin laden's Okada group and they were trying to spread the word that there was a religion. It did not condone this. There was a religion piece there. Like any other americans and they were trying to Basically educate the people that were like you. Here's here's another comment. If you'd like to play that as well sure we just wanna make it. Clear that like we completely condemn was happened in like this is against our religion against our beliefs. And we're just a shocked about it as anybody else's now right. After i talked to this gentleman i ran into the us. President judy genshaft to president at the time and there was a lot of foment on campus about a about an erroneous report. That a very famous radio shock. Jock had said that muslim students on campus for cheering the night of the attack and the police on campus said they had some reports of muslim students. Being verbally abused thankfully not physically attacked. But you know. People heaping blame on them. On their religion for perpetrating nece. The the president went on record saying that was that was not true. That was bunk. And here's what she said. I wanted to say on record. That is an absolute lie. Our campus was completely quiet. Last night i was out through until late in the evening here on campus. Walking around the police were all around. There was no incidents whatsoever last night it was very somber and this is inciting public safety hazards with this other. Radio station is done. it's appalling. It is absolutely appalling. Have you heard about any other station besides at one station. I think it was ninety. Eight rock. I have not heard it on any other stations or i frankly have been in meetings and walking around and seeing people so i haven't been listening to the radio but i did not hear that it was on other stations but whomever here's this kind of thing it is it is nonsense. You have not heard any kind of Reports of threats or violence or anything of that nature this campus. If you walk over there you'll see signs saying that everybody is We're all here to preach tolerance and understanding with one another. So i appreciate you asking me because It has to be publicly known that this is a very safe campus and we want we are open for intellectual inquiry. That was us president. Judy genshaft. steve. What what did you learn. In the days after the attacks about victims who might have connections to the tampa bay region. Yeah going back to judy. genshaft There was a professor at the time. Called sammy el ariane. He ran a think-tank on the us. Tampa campus called wise. I believe it stood for a world. Islam studies enterprise and he had been accused of he had been accused of that being a front for a radical palestinian group called palestinian islamic jihad. This is a couple of years later. This became a national story f. B. went to great lengths to try to collect evidence on them phone wiretaps etc and he was later acquitted of almost all the charges. He did plead guilty to one. Charge was relatively minor charge and he agreed in a plea deal to leave the country you sent over to egypt. That was a really big deal. And you know that and the whole issue of civil liberties being curtailed or being nipped away at the edges. I did several interviews with a gentleman by the name of mike finn iger. He is with the american civil liberties. Union at the time is a former army. Colonel i believe and we had several long interviews about the erosion of civil liberties that was being taken by the federal government. As far as allowing wiretaps surveillance had never been allowed on domestic calls in this country. So that was the back story. All this it just. It wasn't just the invasion of iraq and the forever war in afghanistan. That looks like it finally ended at least for america. It's the ongoing effect of nine. Eleven on our sense of invulnerability and our sense of a bastion of being a bastion of civil liberties as well. The took a big hit during this time. And it's still going on to this day as you think back to twenty years ago. What are the size. What are the sounds smells. If you know what sticks out in your memory from that time that you just can't let go up. Well it's just a day. I mean. I can't believe i was there when the president gave that speech how many how many people get to get to be a witness of that. The history you know. It's like my parents. Generation always talked about were. They were when jfk got shot and before. That is where were you when you heard about pearl harbor. I mean for my generation. It's where were you and nine. Eleven happened. And when i tell people where i was they of look at me sideways a really and then i pull him a little press that i had from that day that was on my bulletin board work forever and i'm like you know that's that's real conversation starter right there so You know i. I'm privileged to be this kind of witness to history as you mentioned for a couple of generations of americans myself included. This was one of those defining moments. I remember it but there are lots of people alive. Now who were young children are they hadn't been born yet. I know you have kids. Have you if you talk to your kids or have you talked to younger. People about nine eleven. What what what. It was like what that day was like what the aftermath was like. You know kind of mentioned my kids in passing about the anniversary coming up. And i was doing stories about it in such and i think to them. It's about as fuzzy as those grainy black and white videos of pearl harbor being bombed were to me. When i was their age it was just so long ago. You know in the past but you know it's hard to explain to kids that age that these actions have repercussions that change history forever. Probably pearl harbor changed the world and we're still feeling repercussions that nine. Eleven changed the world as well and not only in the middle east but everywhere we're feeling the repercussions from that so History lesson for everybody. Thank you steve appreciate it. Thanks so much bradley. That was w us. Steve newborn talking about his experiences on september eleventh. Two thousand one. And here's a final memory from one of our listeners. After watching in horror the second tower crash it was time to leave for my return. Flight to florida from philadelphia ryan had been oslo. Repertory theatre retrieved is. I was listening to. Npr rental car now heard the old executive office in dc had an explosion this as well as many other rumor spread rapidly. But we're being reported upon by all the newsies seizes fact when a guy at the airport people were literally running out in the parking lots in the car. Rental agencies is said they were told to immediately get off the planes. Just leave your luggage in the overhead bins. just go. it took about one second to decide not to return my car and instead returned to newton square. Where after two more days of lebanon no-fly zone contrary eleven of us into decided to make longer back to florida little. Do we know that we are driving home into a very strong tropical storm gabrielle. Because that certainly wasn't national news. Our youngest daughter who was nine at the time was staying with a friend of the tip of annamaria whose roof was peeled back like a piece of fruit. Our oldest daughter is on the university of north carolina. The stress family separation greatly heightened anxiety dark day. us history. it's a kind of event that becomes part of our social collective as was pearl harbor to our parents or grandparents thanks to everyone who submitted their recollections of nine eleven.

"I'm bradley george. After two years on the job. Stephen corral is stepping down as president of the university of south florida. He cited the pressures of the job including the strain put on his health. Corral succeeded. Judy genshaft who led the university for nineteen years re along a former. Us trustee has been nominated to serve as interim president until the university finds a permanent leader. Today's show we look back on corrales terror and the challenges facing college presidents around the country. First up we hear from professor. Tim boaz president of the us faculty senate will tim. I'll start just by asking What what was your reaction. When you heard president corral would be retiring on such short notice. Well frankly. I was surprised. I'd had meetings with him recently. I didn't have the sense that Any of this was in the making that we were doing business as usual. So you know i heard about it right before the announcement was made and was really surprised. I i knew there were some issues. Were had been raised. But nothing that i thought would have resulted in this. What were those issues so Some of the things that i think have been prominently featured in and some of the news about this the announcement about the college of education closing its undergraduate programs that concerns about the requests for information about development of the us forest preserve our group in the faculty senate had had ongoing dialogues with the administration about the budget and had raised concerns about the plans they had developed for how to handle that so You know. I think those were the big ones and as you as you say. Those are kind of those are are the issues you would expect. I think with a university of us size certainly nothing that would that would rise to the president Announcing an early retirement or or being pushed out. I wonder as well You mentioned some of the reporting and later wrong. We're going to talk to deviate kumar from the times About the the story that she had over the weekend. Kind of looking back on on corrales tenure. I wonder coming in the wake of of judy. Genshaft if maybe that was a challenge for him because you had a leader who had been with the school for for so long and had such a presence in the community here you have someone who isn't from the community and has to kind of start from square one in terms of building all the different relationships and networks that collins president needs to be successful Well certainly i think that's you know..

"We need your voice and reach out to your alumni, and your other constituency to say, call your Representative make your voice heard. Heard and president Genshaft has been really good at doing that. An anti a strong president in terms of someone who can be that spokesperson for the university to get out in front of the cameras and say, hey public, we need help. Help us out here and people reacted. This is Florida matters. I'm Robin Sesing ham, and we're talking about university of south Florida. President Judy Genshaft who's retiring after nineteen years, I'm here in the studio with USF assistant news directors Steve newborn, and Mark Schreiner and you probably also know, Mark from the long running university beat which has been covering US f people and events for ever. For many years. So Mark, you recently interviewed president, gin shafir university beat about her retirement. Let's hear a portion of that conversation. Now it's time to leave when you're on the top I was reviewing all that had occurred during this year, but it was from the work from years before, from a billion dollar campaign for a young university like ours to preeminence, which was phenomenal to five beta Kappa to what we received from the American Council, and education, which was the transformational award. You mentioned a lot of the successes. Are there other things that you feel maybe in terms of community presence, that has been increased the economic engine? That is USF that have been on that list of accomplishments for you as well. Absolutely. We have increased our affects in terms of. Economic development and impact that we make well over four point four billion dollars every year, we know that the patents that we produce this one of the largest in Florida and in the United States is well, we know that the students setting up corporations and the faculty that setup corporations is huge every year starting the National Academy of inventors was brilliant, because this now attracts people from all over the world who didn't have a place to talk to one another about invention. What are the things that you wish you had accomplished or you would've liked to have done if you had another year or two, well, they're always more accomplishments to achieve. It's like being on a ladder and you hit a certain rung, and you say okay, now it's time for the next, but we've hit such a point that we're now. And in new era the competition that we have nationally is at a different level. So it means we have to work even harder. They're always new markers that we need to achieve, whether it's the American research library association. We still are nine in that, but we will be this year. We did get five beta Kappa, all American Association of universities. Have a five beta Kappa chapter. Now, we do is well, if you had to pick one specific achievement that really was the pinnacle for the work that you did hear what do you think it would be? I truly believe that having the title of preeminence shed that we are among the top three universities in the state, and our students success is superlative. Our research is number two in the state public or private our economic development where in a great location and just be a part. Of all the good work that has been done move. It for what are you going to miss the most about the university? A lot oh, I'm passionate about the university, and I will always want to maintain the good relationships and friendships, that I've developed, but more than that. I really and truly want to see the university of south Florida become more and more prestigious more and more open to our community in make a difference. I'll flip the coin. What are you going to miss, the least? There are times when it's extraordinarily stressful. And not having that high of a level of stress will be nice. What's next, we love this area. So we're staying in Tampa Bay. There's no question about it. You have to stay tuned is to what's next. I don't think that I'll just sit at home at all. That's not who I am. But it's a crew change in a look and see what kind of opportunities become available. And if not, I'll make some happen, are there things that you regret or decisions that you wish you would have made differently that now you have the opportunity to just kind of look back at and go, maybe I could have done that differently. Well, you know, the presidency and leadership positions are filled with highs and lows. I often say presidency is like a roller coaster ride. Tremendous highs and there there are some pretty definite lows as well. And you just have to ride that through and make sure that you never lose focus on. Your goals, I've seen you mainly that first day of class, greeting students at the Marshall center, greeting students at the other campus is making them. Feel welcome at the university. What do you think that first day of school in August of twenty nineteen is going to be like for you? I'll be una cruise ship. I'll be having fun. Good answer. What advice do you have for your successor? Stephen Krell, be yourself, do what you believe to be right. Make sure you keep preeminence, in all the metrics in front of you, and keep the university of south Florida on the positive trajectory, and go forth and be strong. What message would you have for the students the faculty, the staff, the alumni of the university of south Florida continued to show your bowl pride, and always look at the future stay focused on your goals? Last question when you took this job in two thousand did you envision yourself? Eighteen years later at a preeminent university, still leading it and getting ready to step down. If you look at my inaugural speech, I used the word preeminent institution. I'm not sure I envisioned it quite the way it is right now. But I. I had that vision that we could really make a difference here. And we could really actualize the potential that I saw at the university. We've come a long way. Do you think it's a coincidence, Mark that she waited until the university achieved preeminence a preeminent ranking from the state before she resigned that was a big deal? I can definitely see why preeminence was something that she had pushed foreign, she when I asked her it's, it's definitely one of the top three or four things that you checks off our list in terms of greatest accomplishments at USF, I was personally surprised the timing of her retirement, the announcement, its up timber of last year, only because of the idea that consolidation was still in the works consolidation needs to be attained by July of twenty twenty so the new president even during the interview process for a new president. But how we now know Stephen corral, but at the time everyone who was interviewed for that job said my number one priority coming in is making sure that one consolidation goes well to that pre. Eminence is maintained after consolidation and that was what president Genshaft said as well should be the number one priority of corral, so she's leaving a little bit undone. She is a little bit one thing that she wanted to get done that she never was able to get done, and it's based more along the lines of the, the, the factors of how to become a member of the American Association of universities. It's a small club only sixty two universities around the US and Canada are members and it shows that you are a research university, the goal for a long time as USF joining that one of the things that she kind of feels that she left on the table that she couldn't get done. So what about Judy Genshaft s- role in the greater community? I mean, university of south Florida is a big university. She's had a big impact. Obviously, she's been really busy. But can either have you comment on what her role has been to the greater Tampa Bay community? I think it, it talks about the role of how USF grew in the community. The idea now that it's has a four almost a four and a half billion dollar annual economic impact on Tampa Bay in the region. It's unbelievable. You see the growth of all, three campuses, Sarasota, manatee is looking at adding residence halls as well as other buildings USF, Saint Petersburg, continues to make that transition from being a commuter school to a resident hall school, where students, live and study, Tampa, probably in Steve, you can attest to this someone who went here in the nineteen eighties that it was. A commuter school at the time and now ten thousand students living on campus. Yeah. Steve talk about talk about the changes that you've seen since you were a young boy. I'm going to give away my age here by going back that far. But when I started in the, the early eighties, this was a I think we have maybe a third of the students that are here now it was rather laconic place, where people came to, you know lounge by the pool. They called it the university of sun and fon bottle, cap you because there is a brewery, right down the street that was really the only business here at the time. I mean you risk getting sand, Spurs walking across campus because there was nothing there, but, you know, dirt and sand and many palm trees like they have now and it was really a place where people who warrant so academically inclined came to school here, I'm probably giving myself away. Unlike today, where you have to have a, you know, four point plus GPA to get in. And when I came back to. Work here came back in two thousand one a few years later, and I didn't recognize the place. It was like my school had gone on steroids amazing growth, and even since then I mean I came a few months after president Genshaft assume the presidency and since then you can't even recognize it from from that period. I mean we've probably grown by four times the number of buildings here is incredible. You ge- and that coincides with not only president in Chaffetz rain for lack of a better word, but also the board of trustees taking affect the border. Trustees was established just before she came, and they're really put a focus as Mark can tell you on fundraising, and reaching out to the community as opposed to the old board of regents, which was more of an academically inclined board. And so, you know, we have become so focused on fundraising since. The board of trustees was established here and president gen chap really has fit that Bill quite well. And one of the things that was a goal of hers, that was attained probably about two and a half years ago or so was the idea of the unstoppable campaign, which was to raise a billion dollars in fundraising for the university. USF is one of only three schools ever to attain that one billion dollar fundraising Mark for university that's under I believe a hundred years old, and the other two are out in the university of California system. So it's, it's that idea that the growth came with this need for funding. And that funding has come in and she brought in some big gifts. The names Moumouh Moumouh or Sanni Sita Peterman, ital- Patel. And this also one of the things that she has been very good about is giving credit to her staff, and the people that around her and the people that they brought in one of the people who doesn't who doesn't get the credit at least publicly that he should is Joel Momberg, who's the head of the US foundation, who's in charge of fundraising, and I will make the argument because Joel retires later this year as well. Is that the loss of Joel Momberg? Is going to mean as much to the university of south Florida as the loss of Judy Genshaft? That is Mark Schreiner assistant news director at WSF and longtime producer of university beat, and Steve, newborn is here. Also, WSF assistant news, director and reporter. Thank you guys very much for being here. That's it for today's show you can tweet us at Florida matters. Florida matters is a production of WSF public media. The engineer is George goven. The show is produced by Stephanie Columbanus. I'm Robin sussing ham. Thanks for listening..

"judy genshaft" Discussed on Florida Matters

"This is Florida matters. I'm Robin Sesing ham. It's the end of an era at the university of south Florida after nineteen years as the president of USF, Judy Genshaft is stepping down today on Florida matters. We're talking about the highs and lows of president gin Chaffetz long tenure. I'm going to say at the outset that Florida matters and USF public media is based at the university of south Florida and received support from USF but is editorially independent with me in the studio is Mark Schreiner assistant news director at W, USF, and longtime, producer of university vit. He's been reporting on the university of south Florida for many years, highmark. I Robin, thanks for having me, and Steve newborn WS assistant news director and reporter, Steve attended USF as a student in the eighties. So he seen a lot of changes to the university over the years. Hey Steve glad to be here. Well, nineteen years that is an unusually long time for one person to remain a college president, isn't it? I mean, what's been her secret to her staying power, do you think Mark thinks this thing is Robin nineteen years? I think she passed Jon Allen is the longest tenured president of USF about five years ago, Jon Allen, the first president of the university. And what I think, really worked well, for president Genshaft is that she was always a cheerleader for the university, the joke that has been going around particularly for the last year, but it was very noticeable every speech she ever gives and I mean, you probably wouldn't like someone asks her, you know, paper or plastic. She probably says paper and then she throws in a go bulls at the end. Making that the bowl logo. Yes. Which should I'm surprised one of her hands isn't, you know, posed. An but, but she's, she's a huge like I said, a huge cheerleader for the university while at the same extent a job like that you need to be politically, astute, you need to work with not just a board of trustees who you answer to, but you work well, with city legislators, and of course, with the US F system. You're not just talking Tampa. You're talking Saint Petersburg, you're talking Sarasota manatee. You're talking Polk County with lakeland in polytechnic for a while there. And then state lawmakers because of course it's a state university. It gets funding from the state, and she was very much into a strengthening those relationships and keeping strong bonds with those lawmakers and powers that be in the community constituency. It's a big university. Do you know how many people it's actually? And that's the other thing that that is really being trumpeted now is the idea. Of the growth that took place in the two decades under, again shaft, you know enrollment growing by forty percents. Oh my God. Yeah. Yeah. Right now, I want to say realize that yeah, that's the thing is that just the growth in terms of students. I want to say between the US F system. It's in the neighborhood of now, fifty thousand students on the three campuses of USF Tampa, Saint Pete, and Sarasota manatee, and then another thirty thousand staff and faculty, Mark talk a little bit about her background. She was a professor, I guess she started out, yet, she actually went to university of Wisconsin Madison, social work and psychology. And then she really focused in on school counseling when she got her graduates, and doctorate at Kent state university, and the, the focus, there was how schools reached out to students and you saw that more and more throughout her tenure with the honors college back when she started in two thousand USF's honors college wasn't even a college. It was an honors program at the time. Quickly. She wanted to set it up as a college brought in directors to run it as a college, and now the last probably the last thing that she's going to be best known for is this twenty million dollar gift to create an honors college that will bear her name, twenty million dollar gift from her and her husband. Stephen Greenbaum for this college, that's going to expand to about five thousand students, and at that ceremony in may, when she talked about the gift, one of the things she stressed was the idea that this was something that she has always been about from her education days from her days in college of focusing in add student achievement. All right. So you mentioned Mark that she came on board as president of university of south, Florida and the year two thousand and Steve, she got kind of off to a rocky start. She became president in July two thousand the next year. We had nine eleven and then soon after that the admit. Station suspended a professor by the name of Sami Al Aryan, and this was a national brouhaha and you were were reporting on that at the time, right Semioli, Iran was a professor. He started a group called wise the world in Islam institute at USF L on came under investigation by an independent documentarian by the name of Steve Emerson, who basically accused wise of being a front for a group called Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which was later declared a terrorist group, by the United States government, the month after nine eleven you gotta remember emotions were running really, really high and Ari on when on the Bill O'Reilly show, the O'Reilly factor on FOX and a Riley, basically ambushed him. And people were phoning in death threats bombing threats against USF so Genshaft and the new university board of trustees. You gotta remember the board of trustees had just been established. Replacing the longtime board of regents here, and it was a group of basically business people who are running the university. Just a lot of disruption at this time disruption they came to an agreement that they were going to fire him. They didn't actually do it at the time. And this created a firestorm of controversy from professors, who believe that the university should be a beacon of academic freedom. This became a national even international issue, and it really didn't come to a head until L Aryan wasn't died about the federal government about a year later, and they quieted down a lot of people who were defending him became silent at that point, because it looked like okay. They had reasons beside freedom of speech. They had reasons to suspend him. And you've got to remember back then the image of the university took a really big hit of we, we were being called jihad. You really a nationally. We're getting getting to be embarrassing. Yeah. Rodney plot of bad press. So Steve, you're. Reporting on this story of Al Arian and the university of south Florida, at the time and we have some archival tape of Judy Genshaft at the time. This university has been through a great deal and it's, it's hurt the university, and it's been very difficult for us. And I believe that, that severing all ties of this misuse of our university is a very important step. This university is larger than this particular case. So she did, so she survived that she went on, but then Mark, she did have some run ends after that with faculty. And again, you're going to have that, that, that push and pull at any university, where faculty and administration bump heads. Whether you're talking a pay issues or tenure or things like that, one of the big arguments at USF, which is a big argument in higher education in general, right now is the use of adjunct faculty, which are. Professors and instructors who, don't get a tenure don't get benefits in many cases are poorly paid are working basically part time jobs, as a full-time basis. So that has long been an argument anytime that's Genshaft salary came up the idea that she was at one point in time, the seventh highest paid public university presidents in the country as of two thousand sixteen seventeen academic year, that argument always was, you know what about the faculty. What about the adjuncts how you paying them? But again, it's an industry wide issue right now recently, the university decided to consolidate all of its branch campuses, and this caused quite a bit of concern among people in Saint Petersburg, especially where USF Saint Petersburg, is located. I'm going to put the disclaimer on that of the university may have decided it, it may have been decided outside the university that USF was going to consolidate. There's a lot of. Speculation on who really came up with this idea was it Representative crisp rolls, a USF alum based out of palm harbor. Was it president shafter self? She has been quoted multiple times as saying that she had heard talk about consolidation being an idea, but she was surprised when the state legislature put it in a proposal. But again, you know that there's never really been a definitive answer of whose idea it was as far as I know. But the concern was for years. And this again, predates president Genshaft, the idea of Saint Petersburg, and Sarasota manatee wanting more autonomy, maybe even at some point, separating and becoming their own colleges, while again, the state's nest necessarily was going to allow that, but the campus is ended up with a lot more atonomy under consolidation. Some of that on Tommy is going to be taken back some of that's going to. End up in the hands of Tampa. What comes with consolidation though is more money for those regional campuses. And what a lot of university officials are praising is the idea that a student now can enroll at Sarasota manatee can enroll at Saint Petersburg, and end up taking the same classes that they can take on the Tampa campus. So kind of keeping them as as strong branch campuses with their own identity. But at the same idea, making those programs cross borders across the three, I think one thing that probably in the back of president in Chaffetz mind. This whole thing was the, the lesson of what happened to the USF lakeland campus USF had a joint campus with Polk munity college for many years, and after the started bursting at the seams, literally, they USF wanted to build a branch campus. USF polytechnic is what it was called and somewhere along the line a very. Powerful politician by the name of GD, Alexander who was speaker of the house at the time is very big landowner a Polk County as well. He decided that he wanted to make this a separate campus and he used his considerable political will to basically cleave this off of the us system. And it became Florida polytechnic. It's now this beautiful building with, well, it's university state university. Right. The, the beautiful building this right on I four. But that had to be in the back of her mind. The lesson there of how to keep these branch campuses in Sarasota and Saint Petersburg in the USF or breaking off. And I thought, you know, people who are involved in that very bitter, fight must have also been thinking, well look what happened to the branch campuses. After all good thing, we went ahead and became an independent university that was one big fight that Judy Genshaft ended up losing, when USF lakeland, which became USF polytechnic. It's split that was in two thousand twelve that was that. Must have been quite a rough time. I'm not going to necessarily say that they lost because what ended up happening after, you know, USF losing. Yes, the polytechnic campus which I'm sure was a loss for the university. What happened then was the budget deal? The budget battle that immediately followed that in early. Twenty twelve where JD Alexander basically is the guy who controlled the pen and control the money was going to say, you know, what USF you fought me on this. I'm gonna punish you and he was looking at cutting funding for the university somewhere in the neighborhood of one hundred and twenty eight million dollars. I mean that is like taking a blow torch to a university. That's almost a fifty percent budget cut at the time. And I remember there was a lot of talk about salaries being cut. So it was affecting people in personal level, a lot of angst around, there was and again, that, that goes all the way from faculty down to, how's it going affect students classes. We're talking about being caught, and you saw something similar when? Then preeminence happened with the university preeminence being a mercury get into that. But just as an explanation, a metric system that the state sets up that allows for extra funding for schools that reach these levels at a point in time when USF looked like it was going to attain preeminence, in join Florida and Florida state's the goalposts got moved, and I had the opportunity to watch the board of trustees and president Genshaft at that time rally the troops, and they did something similar with this budget battle back in two thousand twelve and this is again, that political animal that political power that a president needs to use is to reach out to the community to reach out to not just your board of trustees, but businesses around the community to reach out to lawmakers in the community to reach out to power brokers and say, we need a hand..

The interesting story here that I found on drudge, but they compared the democrat race to see who's going to be the next. Democrat presidential candidate. They said it feels like a March madness bracket. And if it were the number one seeds would be former vice president Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, that's pretty well. The way it's been and this is a Fox News poll, and they say either would be favored to beat Trump in the twenty twenty finals, according to the FOX poll democrat primary voters red list of twenty announced in potential candidates for the twenty twenty nomination Biden is the top choice of thirty. One percent followed by Sanders at twenty three percent. I think Biden's pretty much a shoo unless she screws up or something like that. Or if the country continues to shift in the next year and a half. Yeah. I I don't think it's going to shift that far certainly hope not eventually it will obviously. But California's Senator Kamala Harris eight percent that Rourke eight and they would be second tier in the March madness people love Beddoe Aurora. They love them Senator. Cory Booker four percent. Elizabeth Warren, the same New York Senator Kirsten gillibrand two percent. And the other candidates are the political equivalent of a sixteenth seed. They only got two percent. And they say men women whites. Non whites college grads and non grudge democrat primary voters all put Biden, I and Sanders. Second and Sanders has the edge among those underage Forty-five because they are embracing socialism. While Biden is I for those forty five and over and democrat primary voters are more likely to support a candidate. They think can beat Trump fifty one percent. Then the candidate they like most thirty six percent. So they'll go for somebody. They don't particularly care for if they think he can be Trump. And it goes on down.

"Nice. A little bit. So so I'm excited to talk about the growth of USF for a little bit. And and I really want to dive into what you guys do at the US have alumni association because you do a lot of good not just for the university. But in the entire Tampa Bay area, and then the green and gold gala, I'm going to call it. So is there a consensus here as to what it is? Is it a gala gala no everybody because well, the green and gold gala is our is our new this year. This is the new name for the events are raises kind of saying what they feel like. But there's no is there any thing. Official. Did you talk to like the English department in terms of the word itself? And how it's supposed nine might may know Ryan, I think probably depends on what country you come from. If you Kelly gala gala, so right? What do you say KOMO today saying? Sounds fancier to me to be honest with you. But it's going to be a huge event is is this your biggest event of the year. It's one of our events of the year, and you are wearing green and gold in. Also, I've got a tie on. The socks are very very appropriate for the interview. So let let me start with you Camille, tell us a little bit about the work that you do as the director of development for the US F alumni association. You know, a lot of people may not understand the term director of development. Some people ask me are you in real estate and say, well, no, that's not what it is. But my role and straightforward. Here's really the fundraise for the alumni association and the university and in that role. I've got to be able to convey, the vision of the alumni association as well as the vision of the university, and boy all I do all day long is trying to engage people communicate with people connect with people and just keep doing that over and over and over again, and then somewhere along the line somebody may say, hey, well, you know, what I want to support this program that you've got me connected to so that's the fun part of it. When you get somebody to death stage over at USF. Are we getting to the point now because when I went there, and I think. You know, over previous years, it was all about getting USF up to a certain level to be respected at a certain level. There have been a number of of awards the university has received. And and there's been a lot of notoriety. The university has gotten that. What what is it? We're preeminent. Our president will not let you forget it. So so clearly USF has reached a certain level. And now, what is the vision is it is it to really become one of the premier universities in the country. Is that the goal that? We're looking for. That's the next step. First step is to hold onto the premiums. Because that brings a lot of new funding for us in a in a in a level of prominence across the nation. And then take it to the next step and move up the rankings in the in the in the nation. Right. Explain what that is why some people are hearing. What does that kind of in a nutshell? What does that mean? Well, basically, the state a few years back made a recommendation to create this program for preeminence, so they would allocate some extra resources to universities that met this crate these criteria. So they have a thing about eleven criteria that they had benchmarks. So when they first established it these benchmarks, Florida, Florida state where the two universities that hit those benchmarks. So they got this extra money that was just in the pool for education, so USF now we've hit most of those benchmarks. You gotta hit ten out of the eleven benchmarks. And we've hit that the the the hardest benchmark for us right now is our endowment. We've got to be at a five hundred million dollar endowment. And we're at like four seventy or so we're getting with us. So we're very close. So the stock market is part of that to you. So if we have a good stock market here, we might we might hit that so preeminence in in in essence also involves some things. Like our graduation. Wait retention rate. Things of that nature that we have to keep it a certain things have been doing really well for the university. Correct. Absolutely. Look, I'm not gonna lie when I went to USF back in two thousand and one I mean, you had you f and you had FSU. And then of course, you live here in the Tampa Bay area. There was USF and so nice school. It was great to go through. I had a great experience there. But now, it seems like USF is viewed a bit differently. It's in the same light specifically here in the state, and I think we're gaining national prominence as well into being up there with those longstanding, universities and USF's newer. So we've had some catching up to do. Correct. Yes. We have. But we've been in a fast foot race here. And we're doing pretty well. We're we're we're a thoroughbred university where where we are catching up to the leaders of the pack. Let's talk about some of the work that the alumni association does and we can kind of go around the room. Everybody can chime in on on their experience with it. But just give us a broad overview before we of dive in some of the details as to as to what you guys are working on each and every year. Well, we are a I'm association is to really be a conduit for our alums to stay connected share their pride advocate for the university and to protect the university. So the alumni associations that vehicle that does that. And you know, it through that they're just different ways to do that. You you stay involved. You learn more about university. By staying connected learning about our achievements are programs, you share that in the community with other alums and friends and get them excited about USF, you protect us. You know, you've probably known about some of our legislative battles over the years. And you know, that's part of protecting USF the rallying cry when we need it. So the alumni association helps to drive that. And just overall I think there was a study recently that showcase that for most universities that twenty five percent of their fundraising efforts is directly attributable to alumni relations. So our role is to keep our alums engaged. Keep our friends engaged and hopefully helped to drive the philanthropic efforts at the university. And we do a lot of fun things to you. In the Tampa chapter did a bulls block party, Donna ebor to raise money for scholarship program. So that was pretty cool. The Chicago chapter that I was president of back in the day. Just visit Chicago chapter amazing. Five years. Was this a cognitive? I'm technically not an alumni. It's amazing. We speaking as you know, from the Chicago chapter on they just did an event with humane society up there. So in trying to get dogs placed in working with other conferences, like the big ten and they worked with I was going to say the big east, but we're not in the big east anymore. But we the conference the word right now, they will gather schools other sister schools to place animals, so we do volunteering beach cleanups. That kind of thing. And and let's talk a little bit about how important USF is to the greater Tampa Bay area. It's a very important relationship. Because if you have a great university, it's producing great people to enter the workforce that certainly helps the community and helps business in the area. And his Tampa is growing in USF is growing. It seems like there is a a real close partnership between the the broader region and the university. Oh my goodness. Yes. So much to talk about in. That regard USF is a four point four billion dollar economic engine for just this area. We also hire over sixteen thousand employees throughout the university system. So, you know, we're providing a lot of input into the community in that regard in terms of businesses. We. We have a program called the fast fifty six and we recognize the fifty six fastest growing bull-owner bullied companies because we were chartered in nineteen fifty-six. But every year that the companies that keep getting recognized for fastest growing. Seventy five percent of Tampa Bay. Fantastic. So we're we're helping in the region here not only that. But most of our alums, we're you know, USF has three hundred thirty five thousand alums, but one hundred and eighty thousand of them live in the bay area. So they're staying here. They're working here. They're impacting the area and giving back to USF. We're talking to the US FM nicer association here on best of the bay. I'm Ryan Gorman with me in studio. We have Carla mistrial co chair of the green and gold gala federal Halili co-chair the green and gold gala and Kamal Thompson, director of development for the US F alumni association. You can find out more at USF alumni dot org slash g three we're going to get to the details of the green and gold gala coming up here in just a bit. Let me talk to you for a second. What what is your involvement with the alumni association? How did you wind up getting involved with somebody who just recently graduated from USF? Yes. Yes. So I I went to USF, I'm a double ball. I graduated in two thousand thirteen and then again in two thousand fifteen with my mouth. Astor's degree. So I love you. That's that's the technical term double double, Bah. I've heard I think for me it'd be on three fourths bolt. But yeah. So I you know, I had a great experience at USF. I'm from Tampa. And I grew up with USF in the community. So always wanted to go there and glad that I did had a wonderful experience. And when I graduated I really felt the sense that I needed to give back to the university to help students because I received so much help as a student through mentorship and through scholarships. I I went to school Scott is purely through scholarship how so when I. There's a lot of jealous people right now that was the opportunity at the USF community afforded me. So now that I'm in a position where I can help out. I thought you know, what what can I do to get back? So I actually talked to our executive director Bill McCausland. I said, hey, what can I do? And he mentioned that he was looking for, you know, younger alums to get involved at by sitting on the board of the US alumni association. So that was the opportunity that I applied for and so I'm on I've been on the board or three years, then a wonderful experience. And this is my second year as co chair of the green and gold gala. So the event is formerly known as Brahmin bash, and I was co chair last year. And so this year, we're really looking to elevate the event and done increase our impact on the community and Carla how did you get involved with the alumni soc-, I'm on the board as well. And I've been a teacher at USA for a long time. So I moved back from midwest slash Chicago. And I was teaching at Iressa Tampa and USF and he's working the president's office. Those kind of been a part of the university off and on. So when I left USF as an employee and I play for board position, and they were more than they're great. So happy to be part of it. And let's talk a little bit about USF and some of the big aspects of the university. What universities is doing? Well, these days what they're looking to improve on moving forward. We have the big building going up in downtown. That's connected to the university. Komo can you kind talk a little bit about that kind of kind of the focus is for the university in terms of their academics. And their major programs well university to do in a lot of things. Well, currently got to give credit to or or outgoing president. Dr Judy Genshaft will be we will miss her. But I know we'll get a great president incoming right now. The main priority is to finish the health building downtown health Sabine driver. USF one of the one of the couple of key things with that health building really gonna move up the ladder is that most of the the big health institutions in terms of universities around the country are very close to their teaching hospital. And we haven't been Tampa general these are teaching hospital. So this puts us in the proximity teaching there, right? We also will have a little bit more space for med school students right now, we only have about one hundred seventy spots for medical students. We had almost seven thousand applicants last year. So it's incredible. The other part is USF is very good at producing doctors. The the part that's going to the building's going to help us elevate is elevate on is a research part where we we do all the theory. The theoretical side of medicine, and that helps us to move up a move us up the rankings. So that's one component USF just got selected to inducted into the five. Beta Kappa organization is one of the oldest organizations in the country. They're established somewhere in the seventeen hundreds somewhere in there. And they only select three universities every like three years or something in that regard. But it's a high prestigious academic organization. We just got selected to be included in future aspirations. I would say that after the med school. You know, I think engineering needs needs another building. But then, you know, probably ten fifteen years from now I would love to see a stadium on Kevin. I might be getting in trouble talking about that..
