Bev Seay has always been curious about how things work. As a child, she wanted to explore space. By eighth grade, she wanted to be a computer programmer. With a father who worked at IBM, she loved math and science and knew more about technology than most girls her age — traits she passed down to her two daughters and now her granddaughters, who are tinkering with computer hardware and creating video games.
So it’s no surprise that when she became chair of the University of Central Florida (UCF) Board of Trustees in 2019, she wanted to understand the challenges facing the university and strengthen its governance. When she talks about what the board accomplished during her first year as chair, the words “deep dive” come up often.
