Brogan for Chancellor??

Looks like it is a possibility…

"Add Frank Brogan, Florida Atlantic University president and former lieutenant governor, to the list of people reportedly interested in leading Florida’s public university system."

Re: Brogan for Chancellor??

This would likely be a tremendous blow for us if he left right now. He has done a lot to improve and support traditional growth at FAU. He's a genuine, approachable guy.

However, there may be upside to hiring a new President. While Brogan has been successful at improving the student experience, it's no secret that he has few friends among faculty. Our next President, if we get into that situation, needs to not only improve the student experience but also to put a renewed emphasis on the importance of good faculty and the research they do.

It wouldn't hurt to have a very strong connection to the chancellor's office. It helped having the former lieutenant governor as university president.

True…but we would be losing a great leader…despite all of the negative press from the faculty, who are basically in the same boat as every other company that is actually "for profit" with layoffs and no raises being handed out, he has done an exemplary job during his tenure.

Not to mention the athletic's ramifications…he is such a big supporter…would the next President also be??  Big, but very important unknown.

IMO, this would be a huge hit for us to take right now…Hope he stays!

Apparently, the list of candidates has been published, but Brogan's name is not on the list…

I was thinking of Lemanski to replace Brogan at FAU if Brogan got the offer for chancellor and took it.

He still has until the end of the week. I'll bet he's on it.
