Education

The academic leadership search process presents an opportunity for an institution to reinvigorate its community spirit, reaffirm mission and prepare for the future. Witt/Kieffer's education recruitment team identifies higher education leaders who understand complex issues facing both public and private institutions: resource constraints, shifting national policy and increased scrutiny by boards, faculty, students and families. Our consultative approach to the academic search process includes specialized expertise, far-reaching network of contacts and a process tailored to each institution. Stewardship during the transition of leadership is our hallmark. Our scope of education recruiting includes presidents, provosts, deans, and officers for business and finance, advancement and development, student affairs, athletics, enrollment, IT, and more.
