Higher Education Practice

Our higher education executive search firm 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.

We're higher education headhunters.  We understand successful management of an academic institution is more challenging than it has ever been, requiring an increasingly wide range of skills to balance the diverse missions of academics, research, teaching, fundraising, and ever-changing educational issues.

Attracting leaders with the personal and professional characteristics to match the schools’ mission is imperative to ensuring success and requires the counsel of an experienced search partner.

We are the only national firm that combines the recruiting and leadership assessment expertise of consultants from the largest, most well recognized retained search organizations with highly respected, former university Presidents, Provosts, Deans, and department chairs from across the country.

Our search consultant model is unique, and a clear differentiator for our clients.

In addition, we are active members of the American Council on Education (ACE) Executive Search Roundtable, CUPA -HR, NACUBO, and Educause.

Clients include the foremost public, private research and comprehensive universities, research institutes and academic medical centers.

We can help.  Contact us to learn more.
