Program

USF Lakeland is now USF Polytechnic, as University officials say the name change better reflects the campus' focus on the applied and technical disciplines. University Beat takes you to Polk County for a "Poly Pep Rally" and also brings you an update on the plan for a brand-new campus, right in the middle of Florida's High-Tech Corridor.

This week, we revisit portions of two shows we produced earlier this year that ring true now more than ever. We'll hear how three area managers operate during a budget crisis. Plus, we'll revisit our discussion on reinventing yourself in a tough economy. It's advice for both managers and workers, this week on Florida Matters.

Renda Gander-Agnew and Florence Foster
Florence Foster began her appointment as a Hillsborough circuit court judge in 1990. After more than a decade on the bench, Foster was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a disease that interferes with nerve pathways and causes muscle weakness and loss of coordination. After being forced to step down in 2003 due to her disease, Florence started a support group for women with MS where she met Renda Gander-Agnew. Both Renda and Florence discuss the difficulties of the disease and the stress that it places on their families.
