Mori Hosseini, the former chairman of Florida's public university governing board, is moving on to the University of Florida. Hosseini has been appointed to UF's Board of Trustees by Governor Rick Scott.
Hosseini quietly resigned from the Florida Board of Governor's last week. His term was set to end in 2017.
“It has been an honor and privilege to serve on the board of governors. Under your leadership, our universities are far better today with the true accountabilitites you have instilled in our system, Hosseini wrote in his resignation letter to Governor Rick Scott. "I am grateful for the opportunity to have been part of this."
Hosseini will replace UF Trustee Christopher Corr.
