|University of San Francisco|
The Rev. Paul Fitzgerald was named Tuesday as the 28th president of the University of San Francisco. Fitzgerald, a California native who currently senior vice president for academic affairs at Fairfield University in Connecticut, will replace the Rev. Stephen Privett as head of the roughly 10,000-student Jesuit Catholic university. Privett in September announced that he would retire after serving USF as president since 2000. Fitzgerald will oversee an institution — the oldest in San Francisco with its formation in 1855 — with a fiscal 2015 budget of $400 million and 2,100 faculty and staff. He will take office Aug. 1. He was ordained to the priesthood at St. Ignatius Church on the USF campus in 1992.
