Higher Education

We partner with our clients to identify and attract talented leaders who are ready and able to help define and advance the mission and vision of the institutions they join.

A hallmark of our practice is the range of institutions with which we have partnered: private and public; selective liberal arts colleges, large research universities, and academic medical centers; mission-driven, faith-based; rising and established.

We conduct leadership searches at every level—presidents and provosts, senior vice presidents, deans, department chairs and directors. We have developed relationships with senior academic and administrative leaders, leading to a deep and extensive network of potential candidates and sources.

We are proud of our track record placing talented leaders from diverse backgrounds who bring new and innovative approaches to higher education as it evolves and transforms.
