The University awarded a contract for experienced interim leadership to Registry for College and University Presidents, Peabody, MA, for $82,500.
Founded in 1992, the Registry is the nation's premier interim presidential service. In 2002, the Registry expanded with the establishment of a new division for senior administrators. The Registry has contracts with over 100 former college and university presidents and over 50 senior administrators, in over 41 states, all of whom have been selected for membership based upon nominations and pre-screening evaluations. The three Registry principals have a combined total of over 50 years of presidential service at five institutions. The Registry membership has a combined total of well over 1000 years of college and university presidential service. Registry presidential interims will typically serve anywhere from 3 months to 3 years; and in many instances, there is a trend towards even more extended periods of service. Experience confirms that the Registry interim function increases the probability of success for the permanent president-at public and private colleges and universities, as well as community colleges.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
Registry for College and University Presidents, a specialized firm, provides experienced interim leadership to maximize the opportunities and fulfill the priorities established for the period of leadership transition. At the direction of the Board of Trustees Chicago State University has selected the firm to provide an interim President while the University searches for a replacement for Dr. Elnora D. Daniel.
