Presidential Search Update

Agnes Scott Presidential Search Update

Friday, August 18, 2017

Dear Members of the Agnes Scott Community,

We hope you have had some time to enjoy this beautiful summer!  

Today, we write to make you aware that the Leadership Profile for the college’s presidential search is now available on the presidential search website. This document describes the key attributes we are seeking in our next president, along with the opportunities and challenges for our new president to address. Please remember to periodically check the presidential search website for updates.

We send our thanks to the faculty, students, staff and alumnae whose thoughtful input helped shape the content of the profile. The design and production of the document are the result of many hours of thoughtful and creative work on the part of Danita Knight, Julia Lutgendorf ’04, Nicholyn Hutchinson and Alberta Tennant in the Office of Communications and Marketing. Of course, we extend our deep thanks to Lea Ann Hudson ’76 for her coordination in leading this multi-step process.

As we begin a new school year and ramp up the search process, we have scheduled additional Listening Sessions with our search consultants from Witt/Kieffer on September 5-6. Please see the schedule below for times and locations of these sessions.
