Higher education is Isaacson, Miller's largest and most comprehensive practice, with more than half our work in university and college leadership. In thousands of searches across the entire academy, we have served the most distinguished public and private research universities and selective liberal arts colleges. Many are repeat clients; a growing number are international. New presidents have turned to us to help them shape their cabinets.
We credit our success to networks that span the full range of academic institutions, from community colleges to research intensive universities. We regularly network with faculty, trustees, administrators, alumni and funders, and we forge relationships across allied networks such as academic medicine and research, cultural institutions, and foundations. Search committees trust us to find and evaluate candidates who combine powerful organizational leadership with substantive managerial ability, who are committed to a compelling educational mission.
