The Marlboro Record

Presidential Search Advancing

The search for Marlboro’s next president began shortly after Ellen McCulloch-Lovell’s announcement in April 2014 that she would step down after 11 years. Since that time a diverse group of trustees, faculty, staff, students, and alumni have been appointed to the Marlboro College Presidential Search Committee. These 16 members have met regularly since this past summer to develop a position description, and to design and review survey data from the community about their priorities and desired qualities for the next president. They have carefully evaluated an impressive selection of highly qualified and experienced candidates, residing locally, nationally, and internationally. 

“The committee understands the importance of finding the right person who possesses the qualities and experiences that will greatly contribute to Marlboro’s next phase of development as a relevant and competitive player in the liberal arts,” said Peter Zamore ’74, trustee and co-chair of the search committee. “We are working diligently as a group to narrow the pool of qualified presidential candidates, but I have been impressed by the enthusiastic responses received so far by those interested in this special opportunity to lead Marlboro.”

The search committee is expected to reach a decision in the spring of 2015, at which point their recommendation will be voted on by the board of trustees. More information and updates are posted online at the Marlboro College Presidential Search website.
