Experience and Expertise in 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 Leadership Solutions portfolio and based on our partnership with Hogan Assessments, this model provides a template for assessing position candidates and developing current academic leaders.
