Experience and Expertise in Higher Education Recruitment

The academic leadership search process presents an opportunity for an institution to reinvigorate its community spirit, reaffirm mission and prepare for the future. Witt/Kieffer's higher education recruitment team identifies higher education leaders who understand complex issues facing both public and private institutions: resource constraints, shifting national policy and increased scrutiny by boards, faculty, students and families. Our consultative approach to the academic search process includes specialized expertise, far-reaching network of contacts and a process tailored to each institution. Stewardship during the transition of leadership is our hallmark.

Supporting all of our work with higher education leaders is an industry-specific competency model that helps to predict and encourage leadership success. Part of our Solutions for Exceptional Leadership portfolio and based on our partnership with Hogan Assessments, this model provides a template for assessing position candidates and developing current academic leaders.
