In addition, the sections on our history and proven success will give you a sense of what we believe in and what we have delivered over the last 40 years. We're immensely proud of both.

Every search firm has distinguishing credentials. We believe we're unique in our commitment to both identifying and developing leadership. As the subsidiary of the American Academic Leadership Institute, we provide significant funds each year to deliver professional development programs to more than 80 educators who have been nominated by their campuses to enhance their leadership potential. Furthermore, many of our consultants volunteer each year to assist other organizations in their leadership programs.

Our mission statement is very clear and focused: we're here to provide the highest level of search to our clients, and to assist in enriching the pipeline of potential leaders for higher education.

We hope to hear from you,
