Presidential Search

A Leadership Transition at Gustavus

Candidate visit information is now available.

To the Gustavus Community:

In June, Gustavus President Jack R. Ohle announced his plans to retire at the close of the 2013-2014 academic year.

President Ohle's tenure as our 16th president has been one of memorable success and forward momentum in the life of the College. It is with deepest appreciation that we will recall his six years at the helm.

A committee has been formed to assist the Board of Trustees in its election of President Ohle's successor. We invite all Gustavus constituencies to support this process by recommending potential candidates to our search consultant from Myers McRae, Dr. David Gring, at gustavus@myersmcrae.com. Initial screening of applications will begin immediately and will continue until an appointment is made.

We appreciate the interest and engagement of the Gustavus community as we proceed with this important work on behalf of the College and its students.

Best wishes.

Warren Beck
Gustavus Trustee and Chair, Presidential Search Committee
