The University of Louisville, one of the nation’s leading public urban research institutions, announces a nationwide search to recruit its next President.
The University of Louisville was founded in 1798 and was one of the first universities chartered west of the Allegheny Mountains. The University is mandated by the Kentucky General Assembly to be a "Preeminent Metropolitan Research University." The University enrolls over 22,500 students (approximately 16,000 undergraduates and 6,000 graduates), employs more than 7,000 faculty and staff, and has an annual operating budget of more than $1.3 billion. The University has approximately 150,000 living alumni.
The University is a state supported research university located in Kentucky’s largest metropolitan area. The University has three campuses. The 287-acre Belknap Campus is three miles from downtown Louisville and houses eight of the University's 12 colleges and schools. The Health Sciences Center is situated in downtown Louisville's medical complex and houses the University's health related programs and the University of Louisville Hospital. The 243-acre Shelby Campus is located in eastern Jefferson County.
A number of the University’s academic programs are nationally prominent and its Health Sciences Center is widely recognized as a pioneer in artificial heart transplant surgery, hand transplantation, and research programs in neurology, melanoma, and spinal cord injury. The University has a rich and storied tradition in intercollegiate athletics and is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).
Reporting directly to the University of Louisville Board of Trustees, the President is the chief executive officer of the University and is responsible for its effective strategic administration. The University seeks a President who is a proven leader and visionary who can inspire the University community. The next President will have impeccable integrity, extraordinary management abilities, a clear understanding of the mission of a major metropolitan research university, and a passion for educating and preparing students for successful lives and careers.
