Transparency in Higher Education Presidential Search – Take Our Survey
Transparency in presidential searches is handled differently based on the needs of the institution and its home state. Many institutions show complete transparency from the beginning of the search, while others may take hybrid approaches to introducing candidates to their campus community.
In his article “Transparency in Higher Education Presidential Search”, AGB Search Managing Principal Roderick McDavis outlines how the presidential search landscape has changed, the types of searches in practice today, and how each might benefit various institutions. “Regardless of whether the search is open or closed,” he says, “there are some best practices to support the involvement of diverse voices in the decision and facilitate a shared governance approach to the final selection.”
