Search Partner & Nominations

The Presidential Search Committee seeks to identify and recruit highly qualified and diverse candidates who best embody the preferred characteristics of a Kent State University president for now and in the future. The Board of Trustees will select the university’s 13th president, to succeed President Beverly J. Warren when she will leave the role at the end of her term on July 1, 2019.

The Board of Trustees has retained the services of Russell Reynolds Associates, a global search and leadership advisory firm, to assist in the search process.
