Oglethorpe Presidential Search

We have successfully completed the search for our 17th president.

Founded in 1835, Oglethorpe University is Atlanta’s only co-educational small private college, home to more than 1,385 eclectic and engaged students from 37 states and 30 countries.

In April 2019, Oglethorpe’s 16th president, Dr. Lawrence M. Schall, announced that he will step down, effective June 30, 2020 after 15 years of service to the university.

Oglethorpe University retained Diversified Search to assist in the search for a new president, which was successfully completed in March, 2020.
