University of North Florida President John Delaney told about 140 members and guests of the World Affairs Council of Jacksonville and The Gate Governors Club on Tuesday the reasons the U.S. does not graduate a higher proportion of students in science, technology, engineering and math as some other countries is that U.S. students are not as interested in the subjects and are not as prepared.

“We have to motivate students to be more interested,” Delaney said at the Global Business Luncheon at The River Club. His topic was “The Future of Higher Education.”

Delaney, who served as Jacksonville mayor from 1995-2003, said he has talked about the “need to measure what you do” and to tie funding to those metrics.

Delaney also discussed performance indicators within the State University System of Florida and state subsidy patterns for education.
