Academic Search believes a leadership change represents a critical time for tending to the needs and priorities of boards, senior leadership teams, and other campus constituencies. Leadership transitions are significant in the life of any entity and a smooth transition requires planning. We work with our institutional partners to develop a strategy that is custom-made to the specific desires of the institution and the appointee.
