Higher Education

Our work in higher education

Since 1991 Spelman Johnson, in partnership with institutions of higher education, has conducted more than 1,800 searches for institutional leaders and remains the foremost search firm for identifying and cultivating administrative leaders possessing the vision and skill set to advance a comprehensive 21st century mission-driven agenda. Our search practice focuses on cabinet level positions including president, chief financial officer, student affairs, enrollment, chief diversity officer, provost, and academic affairs roles, as well as associate vice president, dean, and director roles across the institution with particular emphasis on positions that have been traditionally difficult to fill such as counseling, financial aid, health services, public safety, dining, and career services.

Our emphasis is on developing a broad, deep, and diverse pool of talent for our search committees to consider while providing direct communication with our clients, and facilitating a smooth and efficient delivery of services. With a history of successful searches, a long-standing commitment to developing and expanding the professional pipeline of women and persons of color, and a uniquely experienced search consultant, Spelman Johnson is your best choice for an executive search partner.
