The Board of Trustees of Endicott College, in Beverly, Massachusetts, invites nominations for and expressions of interest in the position of President.
Shaped by a bold entrepreneurial spirit, Endicott College offers students a vibrant academic environment that remains true to its founding principle of integrating professional studies and liberal arts with experiential learning. Today, more than 2800 traditional undergraduate students pursue degrees on the Beverly campus, and 2400 students enroll in doctoral, master’s, and accelerated undergraduate programs through Endicott’s Van Loan School. A distinct and innovative undergraduate curriculum is anchored by multiple internship opportunities across disciplines. Whether on the Beverly campus, at the academic center in Boston, or at sites across the region and around the world, students embrace Endicott’s commitment to experiential learning, which combines theory with hands-on, career-related experience.
From the 1939 purchase of an elegant seaside estate to accommodate both classrooms and living quarters, to the current 235-acres and 56 buildings that include academic centers, residence halls, athletic facilities, an arts center, and state-of-the-art technology, today’s Endicott has continued to be a beautiful and supportive academic environment where students and faculty come together as a true community of learners. The college has come very far over the last 79 years and was recently recognized as one of the "Most Innovative Schools" according to the US News & World Report.
The next president will join Endicott as it builds on an exciting history of growth, evolution, and innovation. The college’s unwavering focus on its students; the community’s collective sense of responsibility for Endicott’s success; and a proven track record of outstanding academic, enrollment, and financial performance create a unique and unusually strong platform for new leadership. Among the next president’s top priorities will be working with the campus community to imagine the future strategic direction for the college, building on its resources, relationships and remarkable success to strengthen Endicott’s mission and to distinguish Endicott College and its innovative model of holistic, student-centered pre-professional liberal arts education in New England, the nation and the world.
The college seeks a president with a passion for students; vision; leadership ability; significant administrative experience; the ability to develop productive relationships with Endicott’s entire community of faculty, staff, students, alumni, parents, and friends; integrity; and an inclusive, transparent communication style. Outstanding academic credentials, enthusiasm for fundraising, and a record of achievement that will garner the respect of the entire Endicott community are essential.
