Vast Experience in University President Search

Few chief executive positions rival academic presidency in complexity, unpredictability and accountability. College and university presidents hold “day jobs” comparable to their corporate counterparts – managing multimillion-dollar budgets, developing the best leadership teams and distinguishing their institutions in fiercely competitive markets. Yet round-the-clock challenges – from students, faculty, alumni, governance, donors and the public – take a rare mix of stamina, intelligence and leadership skills.

Our university president search team includes former college and university presidents who understand what it means to be a sitting president. Our approach to a university presidential search is as distinctive to each institution’s needs as it is wide in its outreach to gifted leaders. As stewards of the process, we are sensitive to and respectful of the expectations of both the search committee and candidates. We rely on original research, in-depth interviews and extensive reference checks to ensure the best possible match.
