Education Leadership Search
Diversified Search Group’s Education Practice focuses on executive-level searches on behalf of colleges, universities, independent, charter, boarding schools, and education-related nonprofit organizations. Our expertise is grounded in our knowledge of the sector as a whole and in the rigorous understanding that we pursue the particular culture, challenges, and aspirations of each of our client institutions.
We share our clients’ belief that finding new leaders from groups that have historically been excluded is crucial to advancing society’s educational needs. Our commitment, therefore, is to proactively and energetically recruit an excellent and diverse pool of candidates in every search we lead.
We bring to your search our strong relationships with senior academic and administrative leaders and our deep and growing networks of potential candidates and sources. In 2021, 46 percent of our placements were persons of color, and 56 percent were women. We are proud of our ability to identify leaders who bring new and innovative approaches to the education sector as it evolves and transforms.
