The Campbellsville University (CU), Board of Trustees invites applications and nominations for the CU Presidential search. CU seeks a committed Christian and a person of indisputable character to lead the university into the next phase of its history.  The new President will inherit an institution with a compelling story.  CU has experienced substantial growth and success in recent years, providing a strong foundation and potential upon which to build for the future. Furthering this positive trajectory will require a leader who questions education delivery going forward, is a calculated risk-taker, and entrepreneurial leader with the ability to innovate and the courage to implement change.

 

Reporting to and responsible directly to the Board, the President serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the university.  The President has administrative and fiscal accountability and responsibility for the entire academic enterprise, including oversight of the senior leadership team.

 

The next President will passionately embrace and support CU’s mission and values and will have demonstrated ethical and visionary leadership skills which reflect honesty, integrity, and transparency undergirded by a servant-leadership approach.  In addition, the President will enthusiastically serve as ambassador for the liberal arts as well as CU’s wide range of offerings, including technical, online, undergraduate, graduate, and non-traditional programs.

 

Candidates must possess a keen understanding of the challenges facing higher education, particularly Christian education, and develop and implement strategies to distinguish CU in this competitive environment.  The ideal individual will be a student-centric, visible leader; have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills; have a successful, proven track record of budgetary, financial, and operational management; have fundraising and strategic planning experience; exhibit respect for faculty and academic freedom; and display a commitment to diversity and inclusion.

 

Consideration will be given to exceptional leaders in organizations of similar size and complexity to CU, with preference given to experience in higher education.  A terminal degree is required; a PhD is preferred.

 

Applications and nominations will be accepted until a new President is appointed.  Candidates should submit a resume or CV and Letter of Interest addressed to the Campbellsville Presidential Search Committee. Inquiries, nominations, expressions of interest, and applications will be held in confidence and should be submitted directly to ayates@zrgpartners.com

 

Campbellsville University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities, including applicants for admission and employment.
