Encyclopedia > State University System of Florida

The State University System of Florida (SUS, or SUSF out-of-state) is a system of universities indirectly governed by the State of Florida. Prior to 1905, the system was governed by a Board of Education and even earlier variations thereof, reaching back to the Florida Constitution of 1838 wherein a system of higher and normal education was established, based on grants of land from the U.S. Congress. From 1905 to 1965, the few universities in the system were governed by the Florida Board of Control. This was replaced by the Florida Board of Regents in 1965, to accommodate the growing university system. The Board of Regents governed until it was disbanded in 2001, and its authority was divided between the Florida Board of Education (which was given some authority over all levels of public education in the state), and an appointed Boards of Trustees, which operated independently for each separate institution. In 2002, Floridians led by U.S. Senator Bob Graham passed an amendment to the state constitution establishing a new statewide governing body, the Florida Board of Governors. During Florida's 2007 Legislative Session, Governor Charlie Crist signed into law SB-1710 which allowed the Board of Governors to allow Tuition Differential only for the University of Florida, Florida State University, and the University of South Florida (determined by law as the Research Flagships of the State University System). This legislation ultimately created a Tier System for Higher Education in Florida's State University System.[1] Representation of a university class, 1350s. ...
