How to submit nominations

The Presidential Search Committee seeks to identify and recruit highly qualified and diverse candidates who best embody the preferred characteristics of the Kent State University President at this time and for its future.  The Board of Trustees will select the university’s 12th president, who will succeed Dr. Lester A. Lefton when he retires from the presidency as of June 30, 2014.

The Board of Trustees has retained the services of Shelly Storbeck and Susan VanGilder, of Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, to assist in the search process.  Storbeck/Pimentel is one of the nation’s most experienced and highly regarded firms in higher education executive search.  More than one-third of all searches the firm conducts are for the position of president/chancellor.
