Presidential Search

Search for Our Fifteenth President

The Southwestern Presidential Search Committee has completed candidate interviews and has selected the following three finalists to visit campus and meet with the Southwestern community.

Southwestern trustees, faculty, staff, students, alumni, parents and selected  community leaders will have the opportunity to attend campus forums with each candidate and share feedback with the Search Committee using an electronic survey. While the survey is not a voting mechanism, this feedback will provide an additional source of information for the Committee to consider.

Following the campus visits, the Search Committee will provide the Board of Trustees with a recommendation and the Board will elect the next President.

The Search Committee will continue to report regularly to the Southwestern community.
