UF presidential search committee meets to discuss housing
By Benjamin Bornstein – WUFT-FM
The University of Florida Presidential Search Committee discussed possible replacement houses and locations for the next UF president during a committee meeting Friday morning.
The housing issue has been prevalent because President Bernie Machen has not lived in the President’s House, located 2151 W. University Ave., in several years.
Search Committee Board Member Carlos Alfonso suggested that a vacant area near the Levin College of Law would make a suitable location.
Board member Charlie Edwards, however, said he believed the house should stay where it stands and that it would only need a few improvements.
“I don’t want us to get rid of it,” he said. “I would hope that we’re able to not only use the building, but the ground behind that with the possibility of a golf center.”
