Lafayette College invites nominations and applications for the position of president.
Lafayette’s 18th president will lead a college that is firmly established among the nation’s most academically competitive and selective liberal arts institutions. Lafayette offers the rare combination of liberal arts and engineering to an exclusively undergraduate student body of 2,600, the majority of whom live on campus. Faculty at Lafayette are active scholars who contribute to the community’s intellectual vibrancy and create a distinct, individualistic approach and an academically rigorous classroom environment for students. The next president will find the College well positioned to achieve its ambitious goals and aspirations. They will be supported by an engaged and involved Board of Trustees, an outstanding faculty, and an experienced administrative staff.
Ideal candidates will demonstrate a successful administrative record of achievement; the ability to identify, lead, successfully implement and communicate transformational change; a deep belief in the value of a liberal arts and interdisciplinary education; as well as an enduring commitment to advancing initiatives around diversity, equity, and inclusion. The next president will be well prepared to continue to raise the institution’s profile and national reputation; engage and foster a sense of community with all of the College’s diverse internal constituencies and external community and partners; lead in creating and gaining support for the next vision for the College; and secure funds from myriad sources to support that vision.
For best consideration, please send all nominations and applications to:
Shelly Weiss Storbeck, Managing Partner
Sue May, Partner
Lisa Solinsky, Senior Associate
