Since our inception, Academic Search has partnered with colleges, universities, and higher education organizations to recruit more than 1,910 senior-level executives—868 of them presidents or chancellors.
With our innate understanding of what makes a leader effective, we conduct strategic searches and fulfill successful appointments. This success is proven through the number of appointees who remain in office after five years.

A Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
We ensure that every search is exposed to the broadest range of potential candidates through strategic placement of position announcements and direct contact with prospective applicants who represent the entire spectrum of diversity. In addition to our deep connections throughout higher education communities, we support the leadership development programs of many national associations and organizations. Our team provides thousands of pro bono hours every year to help identify and equip the next generation of campus leaders—not to mention our work with AALI, CIC, and AASCU.
