“This is a pivotal moment in my life,” said Dr. Probstfeld, “and in the future of State College of Florida.

Dr. Guilford added, “The key to our success is to leverage diverse and complimentary academic resources to develop a workforce that supports the needs of local communities and creates a national and global influence on education, business, and the arts. We congratulate Dr. Probstfeld and look forward to a renewed and invigorated relationship!”
