Real Estate Foundation Board of Directors
The Florida State University Real Estate Foundation is governed by a 14-member Board of Directors, which is composed of 13 voting members and one non-voting Chair Emeritus. The 13 voting members, who are drawn from the University’s senior administration, direct support organizations and at-large members of the real estate industry, represent a diverse cross-section of skill sets, knowledge and experience. The composition of the board is specifically designed to incorporate members who have experience in and an understanding of the private sector, university administration and direct support organizations. Because of this unique composition, the board is poised to navigate the challenges and complexities of transacting, developing and managing real estate in the context of a public university setting. Additionally, the diverse expertise of the board’s membership enables it to professionally advise and direct the Real Estate Foundation on a host of real estate, administrative and legislative issues.
Elected directors may serve up to two consecutive three-year terms and are committed to building successful partnerships with the University and its many generous supporters. The board of directors includes the chair of the Florida State University Board of Trustees or designee; the president of Florida State University or designee; representatives from the Florida State University Foundation, Seminole Boosters, Alumni Association and Florida State University Research Foundation; three designees (one each) for the President, Provost and Chief Financial Officer; and four at-large members who possess significant expertise in the real estate industry. The board of directors has six officers: a chair, a vice-chair, a secretary and a treasurer.
