In recent weeks, a subcommittee of the Board of Trustees met with several national search firms to discuss the recruitment of Loyola University New Orleans’ 17th president. I am pleased to announce that the committee has selected Isaacson, Miller. This internationally known executive search firm proved to the committee that they have the expertise and the desire to conduct a comprehensive and inclusive global search for Loyola University New Orleans’ next leader. Isaacson, Miller specializes in the recruitment of senior leadership positions; more than 60 percent of the firm’s engagements are in higher education. In addition, the firm has conducted several AJCU presidential searches, including the recent successful searches conducted for Loyola University Chicago and University of San Francisco.
