The Search for Scripps College’s 10th President

Appointing a president is one of the Scripps College Board of Trustees’ most important responsibilities. The 10th president will build on Scripps’ reputation as a premier liberal arts college educating the next generation of women leaders. Our bright students and accomplished faculty scholars fuel a thriving intellectual community within a robust academic, fiscal, and cultural enterprise. We stand poised to amplify Scripps’ impact and expand its influence in the 21st century, and we seek a visionary leader to help chart our course for the future.

Message from the Presidential Search Committee Co-Chairs

The presidential search has advanced significantly since our last report on March 1, and we are pleased to share the most recent developments in the search for the 10th president of Scripps College. In March, the search committee and our search consultant focused on engaging the Scripps community by way of numerous virtual meetings, conversations, and an online survey. We deeply appreciate the current, Life, and Former Trustees, students, faculty, staff, alumnae, and parents who have provided important feedback and information via those channels. More than 130 members of the Scripps community participated in the community listening sessions, 158 sent in nominations, and 30 completed the survey. The community’s input reflects the shared belief that Scripps is a national leader among women’s liberal arts institutions and is deserving of a president who appreciates its academic excellence, embraces our community and culture, and advances our highest aspirations for the College’s future.
