Two USF Leaders Step Down
The leaders of the University of South Florida's Saint Petersburg and Polytechnic campuses are both stepping down, but under somewhat different circumstances.
David Touchton, the interim chief of USF Polytechnic for the past six months, is leaving as the campus prepares to close. USF Associate Vice President Kathleen Moore will lead USF Poly through its planned "teach out" of the students who remain after the state approved its transition to an independent university. Touchton's last day will be Friday.
Also this week, USF St. Petersburg Regional Chancellor Margaret Sullivan announced she's resigning, effective August 2nd. According to a release from USF News, Sullivan, who took the role in December 2009, is resigning to "pursue new adventures."
