Ask the Students: What Are You Looking for in the Next University President?

 “I would like to see a president who embodies the Jesuit values of USF and listens to the community has a whole. It is my understanding that the job of  President of a University is to represent the school to others as well as lead in a responsible and respectful manner. It would be nice to see a president that listens to the students and creates an environment that allows for open conversation about issues that people care about.” -Megan Houston, sophomore, Psychology

“I would love to see a President that is in touch with student involvement on USF’s campus. It would be great to see the next President foster growth of campus life and make USF a destination of students who want to attend the University for the University’s sake, not just the destination for students who want to attend school in SF.” -Lauren Voss, junior, Nursing

“I think it’s assumed that a university leader is one who is honorable and wants the best for the student body but an important value that’s overlooked is someone who is relatable. This role should be taken on by someone we can connect with on a personal level.” -Kelsey Gummow, senior, Communications
