Chairman of UF Board of Trustees announces resignation

The chairman of the UF Board of Trustees, Carlos Alfonso, announced his resignation Friday.

In a statement, Alfonso said he has withdrawn his application for reappointment, which would have needed approval from Gov. Rick Scott.

“I recently decided that after a decade of service, now might be the right time for new board membership and therefore, I will end my service on Monday, April 23, by withdrawing my application,” he said.

Alfonso was a founding trustee in 2001, and was elected chairman last year.

UF President Bernie Machen released a statement Friday afternoon wishing Alfonso well and noting the highlights of his 11 years on the board.

“He was instrumental in many of the university’s greatest achievements during that period, including our increased tuition flexibility, significant progress in innovation and the rapid growth of our campus research infrastructure,” he said.

Alfonso is a UF graduate and a prominent architect in Tampa.
