President Search

Learn more about the search for the 13th President of Indiana State University.

On October 20, 2023, Indiana State University’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved and announced the leadership of the Presidential Search Committee. The Search Committee is tasked with reviewing and interviewing applicants and advancing finalists to the Board.

The Faculty Senate chooses and approves their membership and the Faculty Senate voted to approve their six members because per University Policy, search committee members must constitute 1/3 of the search committee membership as stated in the Policy Library. Additional members of the search committee were approved in consultation with the Search Chair and Board Chair.
