Higher Education Leadership Search was established in June 2017 with a mission to provide a new model of higher education searches – matching talented candidates with distinguished positions in a most cost-effective, streamlined and efficient manner.  All of our consultants are career administrators in higher education (including Presidents, Provosts, Chief Advancement Officers, and Deans) and bring over 250 years of academic experience to the search process.

Since our inception, below are the searches we have successfully performed.
