Transition: John Delaney's exit interview as UNF president in Jacksonville
After 15 years as president of the University of North Florida, John Delaney, 61, retired from academic life in May to resume a law career in Jacksonville. During his tenure, UNF increased student admission standards, transformed its campus with new buildings and became an NCAA Division 1 school competing in the Atlantic Sun Conference.
The former Jacksonville mayor also was a prolific fundraiser: Between 2003 and 2018, the UNF Foundation raised more than $250 million for scholarships, research and other initiatives. The school’s endowment grew from $43 million to $110 million. Delaney talked to Florida Trend about his plans.
