SUBJECT:  Melissa Curry named interim Vice President for Human Resources

I am pleased to announce that effective July 1 Melissa Curry will be serving as the
interim Vice President for Human Resources. Melissa is a 23-year veteran at UF, most
recently serving as assistant vice president for Human Resources, overseeing the areas

Strategic Initiatives. As director of Recruitment and Staffing for 10 years prior to her
current role, she led a number of UF system implementations, including the electronic
personnel action form (ePAF), and the GatorStart online onboarding system. Melissa
also led the recruitment efforts for UF’s Faculty 500 initiative and created the Strategic
