Update on Presidential SearchTuesday, December 18, 2012
Over the past weeks, the Presidential Search Committee has been busy gathering information, requesting and reviewing proposals, and interviewing search firms to partner with them in the search for IWU's 9th President. After completing interviews and checking references, the firm of EFL Associates has been selected.
EFL Associates has a 30-year history of successfully identifying and attracting high caliber professionals. They also have extensive experience working with faith-based universities and other non-profit organizations. EFL Associates has its headquarters in Leawood, Kansas, and an office in Denver, Colorado.
The lead consultant working closely with us will be Jan Asnicar, Vice President of EFL Associates. Jan has personally led over 100 searches since joining EFL. Prior to joining EFL Associates, Jan's career was in higher education and educational consulting. She specialized in assisting institutions with the development of programs for adult learners and, in fact, assisted in the development of IWU's early Adult, Graduate and Online programs. We are pleased to have her as a partner and believe we will have a highly qualified and diverse pool of candidates as a result of her work.
It is anticipated an active search will begin by mid-January.
