The Search for Campus Compact’s Next President

Campus Compact is conducting a national search for its next president. The search committee, led by Katherine Conway-Turner, is working with the executive search firm Diversified Search Group to assist with the process.

A Message from the Search Committee

The board of directors of Campus Compact has the important responsibility to select the next President for our organization. We seek to identify the successor to Andrew Seligsohn who admirably served the organization as President for the last seven years.

The Compact is a values-driven national coalition of colleges and universities committed to the public purposes of higher education. For more information about Campus Compact please visit us at compact.org.

We are seeking a leader who will continue to mobilize, leverage, and energize our commitment to civic engagement, democratic values, and the public purposes of higher education. The next leader will build on our 35 years of collective experience, expertise, and commitment and galvanize our work to address the current and future challenges that our communities will face. Our amazing network of campuses and their dedicated faculty, staff, students, and administrators constitute a network of place-based skilled leaders who through research, teaching, and community engagement address challenges within our regions and communities.

We invite you to share this information broadly or to nominate outstanding leaders who are ready for the challenge and the rewards of leading Campus Compact into our future.
