Academic Deans

Today’s successful colleges and universities focus on their mission as well as an ever-changing world to ensure educational excellence for students. Tuft & Associates connects academic leaders and search committees to premier candidates who integrate scholarship and strategy to excel as academic deans and administrators, endowed chairs and senior campus leaders.

  • Engaged. Our academic executive search practice has placed more than 50 deans and chairs for high-profile nursing schools and other key posts in academic administration. Our nationwide network enables us to readily identify influential nursing leaders who are ready to move to their next challenge.
  • Experienced. Tuft associates have earned advanced graduate degrees and have held senior positions at leading academic institutions. Our lead consultants for nursing school dean searches, in particular, are RNs who are also well-networked and broadly recognized in the nursing field.
  • Insightful. An academic executive search often needs to meet wide-ranging interests across the campus that are represented by carefully selected search committees. We’re adept at working with search committees to draw upon member expertise and experience.
