Presidential Search

You are here

Immaculata University is a community of faith, learning, and service founded in 1920 by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM). Immaculata's strategic agenda focuses on cultivating a new era of academic excellence, innovation, and creative risk-taking in the Catholic and IHM tradition.

The University is in the process of searching for its tenth president to build on the successes of past leaders, to promote the continued flourishing of the institution, and to guide it forward in keeping with its core values. Immaculata is seeking a president with a strong vision for the University's future that will enable the University to continue responding to the needs of students and of the global society while adapting to changes in the higher education environment.

Immaculata is partnering with the executive search firm R.H. Perry to search for the institution's next president. R.H. Perry has gathered input from the IU community to determine the desired characteristics of the next president. Based on this information, the firm has created a position profile and search materials. Applicants may apply on R.H. Perry's website. The firm will review their credentials and select semi-finalists to be reviewed by the IU presidential search committee, which will narrow the list to a group of finalists. Immaculata's board of trustees will consider these finalists and will select the new president in January 2017.
