Candidate Resources Find a Position

Philip Tang

Philip Tang is a consultant in Witt/Kieffer’s Education Practice. Based in Baltimore, MD, Phil works on behalf of client institutions to recruit and place leaders in higher education, academic medicine, and health sciences across the country.

Phil joined Witt/Kieffer following 14 years in senior leadership roles at Johns Hopkins University, most recently as vice provost for academic services, where he had university-wide responsibility for online education and digital initiatives, stewarded international programs and partnerships, and oversaw the institution’s most recent reaccreditation process.

On behalf of the president and provost, Phil managed nearly 20 searches for university executives, including the provost, vice provosts, and deans of every school at Johns Hopkins. He systematized the university’s leadership search processes, worked closely with or co-chaired search committees, and routinized implicit bias training for committee members.

Having directly served eight provosts and partnered with deans and other leaders across the Johns Hopkins University and Health System, Phil brings to Witt/Kieffer a nuanced and comprehensive understanding of university administration as well as an institutional perspective on planning and executing an effective search. He approaches each engagement with a collaborative spirit, uncompromising standards, and a deep respect for candidates and their experiences during the search process.
