Miami President David Hodge retires from that position June 30, 2016. A university committee will work to identify a handful of exceptional, well-qualified individuals for consideration as our next president.

Assisting the search committee is executive search firm Isaacson, Miller, whose representatives met in August and September with 25 groups and individual faculty and staff from all Miami campuses to discuss the search. The firm also held four public forums allowing faculty, staff and students to tell what they believe are the necessary skills and qualities for Miami’s next president and the opportunities and challenges she or he may face. Nearly 300 responses were received through online survey questions.

Miami expects to host a presidential finalist in spring 2016.
