Oglethorpe Presidential Search

We are currently conducting a search for Oglethorpe’s 17th president.

Founded in 1835, Oglethorpe University is Atlanta’s only co-educational small private college, home to more than 1385 eclectic and engaged students from 33 states and 31 countries.

In April, Oglethorpe’s 16th president, Dr. Lawrence M. Schall, announced that he will step down, effective June 30, 2020. Schall has served since 2005 and is currently the longest-serving sitting college or university president in Georgia.

Oglethorpe University has retained Diversified Search to assist in this recruitment. Confidential inquiries, nominations, referrals, and expressions of interest (cover letter, CV, and the names of five references) should be directed electronically to: OUPresidency@divsearch.com
