Description: The University of South Florida System (USF System) is governed by the USF Board of Trustees, the public body corporate created by Article IX, Section 7 of the Constitution of the State of Florida. The USF System is comprised of two separately accredited institutions, USF and USF St. Petersburg. USF includes the main campus in Tampa, its College of Marine Science in St. Petersburg, USF Health and two regional campuses, USF Sarasota-Manatee and USF Polytechnic, located in Lakeland. Serving more than 47,000 students, the USF system has a $1.8 billion annual budget, an annual economic impact of $3.2 billion and was awarded $380.4 million in research contracts and grants in fiscal year 2008/2009.

The University of South Florida System is a young and emerging system that currently includes three institutions, each separately accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools: USF ; USF St. Petersburg ; and USF Sarasota-Manatee. The main doctoral research campus in Tampa is home to USF Health which includes the Colleges of Medicine. Nursing. Public Health. and Pharmacy ; and to the College of Marine Science which is physically located in St. Petersburg. Serving nearly 48,000 students, the USF System has an annual budget of $1.5 billion and an annual economic impact of $4.4 billion.

The USF System was formed to bring its three institutions together, so that collectively and collaboratively they could serve the region and beyond in optimal ways, resulting in a stronger presence and a distinctiveness that provides an unstoppable competitive differentiation. In addition to being a strong and unified voice for higher education, the USF System seeks to find and capitalize on synergies and economies of scale among its institutions that are of benefit to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and communities.

At the heart of the USF System is a vibrant, diverse, and engaged student body. With over 240 degree programs at the undergraduate, graduate, specialty and doctoral levels, including the doctor of medicine, the USF System offers a dynamic learning environment that inspires innovation and creativity and is focused on student success. More than 2,000 distinguished scholars, researchers and expert teachers, nearly all holding PhDs or the highest degrees in their fields, make up the faculty - including the 2012 U.S. Professor of the Year.

The USF System operates within the USF Board of Trustees governance structure. The USF BOT appoints the USF System President and Chief Executive Officer, who in turn appoints the Regional Chancellors of the member institutions. The President and other System Officers are advised by three USF System Advisory Councils and the USF System Faculty Council. the principal representative faculty governance body for the System.
