BOG Chancellor Search

July 22nd, 2009 by flanews

The University Systems Board of Governors spent 75,000 state dollars searching for a new chancellor.

Meanwhile, the man the board ended up hiring was right under their noses. Last week the board named Frank Brogan as their next chancellor. Brogan was on the search committee before a consultant named him as a candidate. Board of Governors spokesman Bill Edmonds said Brogan took immediate action once he decided he became interested in being the new chancellor.

As soon as he knew he was involved in the search he resigned and then later applied, but at the start he was an unknown, no one had any idea. But even if we did, we wanted to have a nationwide search. We wanted to have what we ended up with, 13 good candidates, four strong finalists. You really want to do that, you dont want to just go and find somebody you know and hire them. It turns out in this competitive process he turned out to be the winner and thats to his good credit. Thats not any deficit of the search process, said Edmonds.

Brogan served as lieutenant governor during Jeb Bushs administration. Hes currently the president of Florida Atlantic University.
