1 State University System of Florida The State University System of Florida (SUS, or SUSF out-of-state) is a system of universities indirectly governed by the State of Florida. From 1905 to 1965, the few universities in the system were governed by the Florida Board of Control. This was replaced by the Florida Board of Regents in 1965, to accommodate the growing university system. The Board of Regents governed until it was disbanded in 2001, and its authority was divided Florida Board of Education (which was given some authority over all levels of public education in the state), and appointed Boards of Trustees, which operated independently for each separate institution. In 2002, Floridians led by Senator Bob Graham passed an amendment to the state constitution establishing a new statewide governing body, the Florida Board of Governors.
