Academic Search was founded by higher education leaders on the principle that they provide the most value to partner institutions by combining best practices with their deep knowledge and experience. They bring an understanding of college and university processes from specializing in higher education searches for more than 44 years, and their consultants have an intimate understanding of what makes a successful executive leader. They bring this expertise directly to partner institutions through their hands-on involvement in the recruiting, evaluation, and vetting of each candidate pool for every search. Since its inception, Academic Search has completed more than 2,000 executive searches. In the past five years, 63% of all searches conducted by Academic Search have resulted in the appointment of women and/or persons of color.
