Visionary Leaders Distinguish Their Institutions

Colleges and universities distinguish themselves through a rich mixture of values, culture and academic excellence. Academic officers create that mix by continuously improving academic programs, attracting the finest faculty, enhancing student recruitment and retention and supporting cultural inclusivity, among many other initiatives.

We identify and support the recruitment of provosts, vice chancellors and chief academic officers with vision, leadership and experience to enhance an institution’s reputation. Our consultants include former college and university presidents and other senior staff who appreciate what it means to coordinate academic departments, grow enrollment and find talented academic and administrative leaders, despite diminished resources. By listening carefully to clients, we become a strategic partner in each search. We develop precise position specifications, access our national network of contacts and conduct a comprehensive check of credentials and references to find the best leader.
