SUBJECT:   Presidential Search Update

The search for Albion College’s next president is underway. The Search Committee has completed the Presidential Search Profile to be used for all advertising and recruiting related to the search. A copy has been posted on our website at

As you review the Search Profile, please pay particular attention to the attributes most highly desired in our next president. We urge you to suggest people you know who could serve effectively as our next president and/or those who might know potential candidates to refer to us. Please forward their name(s) to our consultant, Tom Courtice, at . The Search Committee believes that the success of our search depends on the involvement of all members of the Albion community. By nominating strong candidates, you can contribute immediately to the search process.

Over the summer months, we will generate the candidate pool through nominations received from you, contacts with national educa­tion and founda­tion officials, inquiries at other colleges and universities, letters to alumni, parents and friends of Albion, advertising in The Chronicle of Higher Education (6/14/13) and other publications, and the work of our consultant.

The search is off to a good start. I will write to you again as we enter subsequent stages of the process. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact me () if you have questions. Thank you for your interest and your support.
