The Board of Trustees of Trinity University invites nominations and applications for the position of President of the University. The President is the chief executive officer of the University and serves as president of the faculty and ex officio on the standing committees of the Board of Trustees. Located in culturally rich and vibrant San Antonio, Texas, Trinity University is a private, selective, and residential liberal arts institution with approximately 2,300 undergraduate students and 200 graduate students from 43 states and 60 foreign countries. The student body includes a growing representation (39 percent) from historically underrepresented groups. Two hundred and forty full-time faculty, 98 percent of whom hold the Ph.D. or other terminal degree, provide a student-faculty ratio of 9:1. Trinity has a model NCAA Division III athletics program that balances academics and athletics. Trinity’s many assets include: a substantial endowment of $1.1 billion, well above the average of peer institutions and 47th largest among private universities; a new and invigorated curriculum; a strategic plan that builds upon the University’s strengths; and extraordinary resources for teaching and scholarship, including the new 280,000-square foot Center for the Sciences and Innovation. The Board seeks an accomplished and energetic executive who has gained distinction as an institutional leader and fund-raiser, preferably with extensive experience in a university setting similar to Trinity’s. The new president is expected to be selected by January 1, 2015 and to take office by the following summer. A full search profile is available at the Academic Search website, www.academic-search.com.
