UF President Bernie Machen Announces Plans to Step Down
The President of the UF Board of Trustees says he would have offered Machen a contract extension next year.
Now UF will have Machen's help in finding his replacement.
Dr. Bernie Machen began his career as UF's President in 2004, filling the spot of Former UF President, Dr. Charles Young.
Since Machen's arrival as President, he has found ways to bring more research money into the University.
Student Body President and UF Board of Trustees Member, TJ Villamil says, "Being president of such a large research university, especially one of the most prominent research universities in the nation; it's a tough balancing act when you have Shands, you have the UAA, you have IFAS and obviously the most important part is you have the students and Bernie has always put the students first."
Machen plans to continue working as a professor at UF after 2013.
