Presidential Search

 

Rosenwald Hall at Dillard UniversityDillard University has announced a nationwide search for its eighth president. To identify the best leader for Dillard, the University is committed to a thorough and inclusive search process among a diverse pool of qualified candidates.

 

To assist in this very important search, Dillard has partnered with national executive search firm Isaacson, Miller, a preeminent firm serving academia in the recruitment of presidents for some of the nation’s leading colleges and universities. The team of consultants is led by Monroe “Bud” Moseley, partner. 

 

With information gleaned from stakeholder conversations and shared through a survey (below), the search advisory committee and consultants will formulate a position profile to serve as a guiding document during the recruitment and assessment process. The goal is to finalize the profile by the end of December.

 

Isaacson, Miller will spend the late part of 2021 and early part of 2022 developing a candidate pool for the search advisory committee to review, interview and assess. The strongest candidates in that pool will then be invited to meet with a larger group of campus constituencies and it is our expectation to announce the final selection by the spring of 2022.

 

The Dillard community can stay informed about the progress of this search through this webpage. While appropriate details about this search will be shared publicly, it is important for the community to understand that candidates rely on the discretion of the search committee and our guarantee of a confidential process.


DILLARD UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT COMMUNITY FEEDBACK SURVEY

 

To help define the professional experiences, traits and attributes needed in Dillard's next president, the University's faculty, students, staff, alumni and other campus stakeholders are asked to provide input.
