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.

As Board Chair Lynne Thompson ’72 announced in January, Trustee committee members have been deeply engaged in laying the foundation for the search process, and we are pleased to share our recent progress. READ MORE
