The Search for Muhlenberg College's Next President

Presidential Search Update from the Chair of the Search Committee

June 4, 2014

The search committee and I have been working with Park Square Executive Search on several different fronts to move forward our search.

Your own response to our initial outreach was substantial with nearly 300 members of the community offering thoughts about the profile for the next President. The search firm also visited the Muhlenberg campus and spoke with many different constituency groups. The combination of these conversations and input has helped the committee draft a formal position description.

The search is active, with recruiting that will occur throughout the summer. Our outreach is broad. The firm has identified almost 400 sources and prospects in their academic network as well as among alumni of the College and at targeted institutions focused on the future of higher education. We will send an additional update as we make progress.
