Presidential Search Advisory Committee

The Board of Trustees approved the action of the Executive Committee to immediately begin the process of identifying a new world-class president for our university. This will be an orderly, seamless, painstaking and intelligent process. This process will involve select USC constituencies such as the faculty, the administration staff, the student body, alumni, our banking and financial allies and other entities that work with the university regionally, nationally and globally.

Information on the search committee (in formation) and process will be forthcoming from the Board of Trustees and the firms engaged in the search, Isaacson Miller and Heidrick & Struggles.

If you would like to provide your perspective on the future of the university and the search for a new president, please send us your thoughts via email to or use the comment form on this site.
