FGCU Seeking Applicants for Its Fifth President

Riley Hazel, Executive Editor

The Presidential Search Firm, Greenwood Asher & Associates, has entered the recruitment phase in the search for FGCU’s fifth president.

During Thursday’s Board of Trustees meeting, material was approved to profile the university and attract potential candidates. The document details qualifications of an ideal candidate and facts about the university.

The Presidential Search Committee and the Board of Trustees will bring a president-elect to the Board of Governors for confirmation on May 10, with a start date of July 1, according to the timeline.

FGCU has continued the search for its next president, as the process was moved to restart in November of 2022. Finalists Dr. Susana Rivera-Mills and Dr. Tod Laursen withdrew from consideration in last fall’s search.

Nominations can be submitted by emailing Julie Schrodt at [email protected]
