Allegheny College invites nominations and applications for the position of President.
A top-tier liberal arts college of about 1,800 students, Allegheny attracts high-achieving applicants from across the nation and the globe. The College, located in northwestern Pennsylvania, encourages and celebrates students’ unique blends of interests and talents. Allegheny’s undergraduate residential education prepares young adults for successful, meaningful lives by promoting students’ intellectual, moral, and social development and encouraging personal and civic responsibility. Allegheny’s faculty and staff combine high academic standards and a commitment to the exchange of knowledge with a supportive approach to learning. Graduates are equipped to think critically and creatively, write clearly, speak persuasively, and meet challenges in a diverse, interconnected world.
Allegheny’s 22nd president will be prepared to embrace the College’s “Third Century Quest” by collaboratively developing strategies and engaging in shared governance to: increase financial aid; enhance global learning and internship opportunities; strengthen a diverse campus community; continue to renovate, restore, and maintain the historic campus; honor the College’s historic traditions while maintaining a vision for the future; and fundraise for the long-term financial well-being of the institution. Other opportunities include continuing Allegheny’s national leadership in sustainability, partnering closely with the Meadville community on mutually-beneficial programs, and closing out the $200 million “Our Allegheny” comprehensive campaign. Passionate about enhancing Allegheny’s cross-disciplinary learning environment, the next president will be accessible and engaged, both on campus and with external constituencies, including alumni, national affiliates, and international partners. The ideal candidate will possess superior leadership experience and skills and a strong commitment to liberal arts learning.
Consideration of candidate materials will begin immediately and continue until a new president is named. The College is being assisted by the national executive search firm Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates. Nominations and letters of interest with a curriculum vitae may be sent in confidence to:
