Presidential Search

Montreat College has begun the search for its eighth president.


The Overview

On March 1, the Montreat College Board of Trustees announced that it launched a new search for Montreat College’s eighth president. The goal is to have a president in place by June 2014.

Presidential Search Committee includes alumni, trustees, faculty, students, staff, and community members. The search process will begin with a careful assessment of the college’s distinctive character, opportunities, and challenges to clarify the skills and perspectives that the next president will need. Seeking a collaborative process, the chair has invited all college constituencies to provide input and recommendations for the committee’s consideration.
