Message from the Tuskegee University Board of Trustees:

Dear Tuskegee Community,

We want to share with you that we are rapidly moving forward with the important search for the next president and leader to carry on the prestigious legacy of Tuskegee University. 

Message from the Board of Trustees:

On Saturday, the Tuskegee University Board of Trustees selected AGB Search to immediately begin a national search for the next president of our prestigious, renowned, and historical university.

Retired Maj. Gen. Charles E. Williams, chairman of the board of trustees, has selected Trustee Felker Ward to chair the Search Firm Management Sub-Committee. The committee is responsible for the day-to-day activities of this critical search. AGB Search will work closely with the board and the committee to identify and present a slate of highly competitive and credentialed candidates to lead and advance Tuskegee University. 

AGB Search is an affiliate of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB), and draws on more than 90 years of experience in educational and institutional governance as well as collaborative leadership.

With upward trends in student retention and academic performance, faculty teaching, research productivity and enrollment, Tuskegee University remains a globally competitive university that prepares graduates for success and service.

Impassioned and loyal, the Tuskegee University family of alumni, students, faculty, staff, donors, partners and leadership look forward to the opportunity to embrace a new president with vision and a record of high performance and leadership.
