Higher education executive search remains our firm’s core practice. We understand successful management of an academic institution is more challenging than it has ever been. This creates demand for new sorts of leadership at all executive levels requiring an increasingly wide range of skills to balance the diverse missions of academics, research, teaching, service, fundraising, and ever-changing educational issues.
Similarly, we are sensitive to a number of important traits in the recruitment and evaluation of prospective candidates, such as a professional reputation above reproach, history of collaboration with peers, deep commitment to the academy, success in the identification and development of talent, and superb communication skills.
Our higher education practice is routinely engaged to identify the next Chancellor, President, Provost, Dean, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Information Officer, Department Chair, and other high-level senior administrators.
Our seasoned consultants assist clients in designing a comprehensive, targeted search recruitment process that blends efficiency, confidentiality, and inclusiveness, accurately representing the opportunity to cultivate candidate interest at the highest level - ensuring recruitment of a robust, diverse pool of candidates in each search that positively promotes the institution.
