Indiana University seeks a president to lead us into our third century
After 13 years of accomplishment-filled service as president of Indiana University, President Michael A. McRobbie has announced that he will be stepping down in June 2021. The IU Board of Trustees announce a nationwide search to recruit a new leader who can further build upon the university’s rich history and international reputation.
Reporting directly to the Board of Trustees, the president is responsible for the effective operation of the university. The board is seeking a leader who is strategic, visionary, student-centered, and capable of addressing the challenges and opportunities facing major public universities this decade and beyond. The selected individual will possess unquestioned integrity, exemplary communication skills, and the ability to manage a large, complex, multi-location higher education university.
Outstanding managerial skills, financial acumen, and the ability to raise funds and develop additional revenue streams are all important characteristics. Candidates must value a world-class faculty and demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
