Millersville University - one of the most prominent of the 14 universities of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education - invites applications and nominations for the position of president. Millersville is a vibrant, comprehensive, teaching-focused, student-centered learning campus of almost 8,000 students located in bucolic Lancaster County.
The university is seeking an experienced leader with the leadership qualities to build on the institution’s reputation and take it to even higher levels of academic excellence and student success. The exceptionally qualified and committed faculty and staff are proud of Millersville’s accomplishments, providing students with outstanding academic and life experiences.
The new president will express a passion for the mission of public education and understand the important social and economic roles it plays in the region and state. The ability to articulate the institution’s value will serve the president well as an advocate for the university at the state level and as a “friendraiser” and fundraiser with the university’s many and broadly based constituents. This new president will arrive at a time when the campus is poised to make the changes necessary to sustain Millersville’s mission and relevance in the face of changing higher education paradigms, and will lead specific initiatives aimed at a continuing transformation of the campus thinking, practices and culture.
Millersville’s next president will have the opportunity to lead a vibrant, stable university towards future successes, partner extensively in the community, and reside in a beautiful region of central Pennsylvania.
