Clarkson's Search for 17th President Since 1896
President Tony Collins will be stepping down as Clarkson's 16th president at the conclusion of the 2021-2022 academic year after 40 years of service to the institution. The Clarkson Board of Trustees established a Presidential Search Process and appointed a Presidential Search Committee co-chaired by Trustees Georgia Keresty '83 and Sanjeev Kulkarni '84. The committee chose Isaacson, Miller as the University's external search firm with Kate Barry and Elizabeth Dorr as our partners.
The Presidential Search Committee and the Isaacson, Miller search consultants held listening sessions with Clarkson faculty, students, staff, alumni and senior leaders in September and October. The valuable feedback from those listening sessions was utilized in the composition of the position profile, which the committee released in mid-October. The committee welcomes applications as well as nominations regarding potential candidates and others who may have suggestions. The committee and Isaacson, MIller will actively recruit and evaluate candidates into the spring semester with the committee interviews beginning in the winter. The Clarkson Search Website will be kept current with periodic updates for the Clarkson community to keep everyone apprised on the progress of the search.
