Frank T. Brogan (born September 6, 1953 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is the President of Florida Atlantic University and a former Republican Lieutenant Governor of Florida. Brogan is a longtime educator who served eight years in statewide office.
Brogan next focused his career on educational administration. In rapid succession he served as the Dean of Students at Indiantown Middle School, and then Assistant Principal, and Principal of Murray Middle School. While an administrator, Brogan negotiated a gun away from a student. Brogan was eventually elected to two terms as the Superintendent of Schools in Martin County.
Brogan was seeking a second term as Education Commissioner, when in 1998, Jeb Bush asked him to be his running mate as Lieutenant Governor. The Bush/Brogan team won the general election. As Lieutenant Governor, Brogan oversaw education policy and acted as legislative liaison for the Bush Administration.
In late 2002, Brogan proposed to and later married Courtney Strickland. The couple has one son, Colby.
Brogan was reelected Lieutenant Governor in 2002, and shortly after being sworn into a second term in January 2003, he was appointed President of Florida Atlantic University. He resigned from the Lieutenant Governorship effective March 3, 2003, and assumed the university presidency that same month.
