MARSHALL CRISER III

CHANCELLOR, STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM BOARD OF GOVERNORS, TALLAHASSEE

The BOG serves as the governing body for the State University System, overseeing the state’s 12 public universities. Criser, who worked for AT&T for 33 years and headed the company’s operations in Florida, was active in education policy and became chancellor in 2014. During his tenure, Florida has become the top state in the country for higher education for five years in a row.

EDUCATION University of Florida (BS)
ACCOMPLISHMENT The system has increased its four-year graduation rate by over 10% in the past five years; it has seen a 31% year-over-year drop in the cost-to-students for a bachelor’s degree — ranking Florida with the second-lowest tuition in the country.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I enjoy collecting art pieces by local Florida artists, in particular C. Ford Riley.
