The ETBU Presidential Search Committee is pleased to announce the selection of AGB Search to assist the Committee with conducting a national search to identify candidates for the next President of East Texas Baptist University. AGB Search focuses exclusively on higher education leadership, conducting searches on behalf of colleges, universities, systems, and related foundations across the country. Dr. Paul R. Corts, former President of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities ( http://agbsearch.com/about/our-team/paul-r-corts ), will be the AGB Search lead consultant bringing his considerable experience and success to assist in the search.
The Search Committee intends to post periodic updates to this site to keep the campus community, alumni, friends, and supporters informed about the process. In a search for a new president, it is very important to protect the identify of those highly qualified professionals who allow their credentials to be examined in the search process, so we will not be able to post specific information about candidates. We will be posting general information about the progress being made in the search process. We ask that you respect the high degree of confidentiality needed to allow us to secure the best candidates and know that all those involved in the search process are committed to maintain strict confidentiality.
The ETBU Presidential Profile that provides appropriate information for those who would like to apply or make nominations is available here and on the AGB Search web site ( http://agbsearch.com/searches/president-east-texas-baptist-university ).
The Search Committee will be following a general timeline that is designed to have the search completed before December 31, 2014, and the appointment of the new President to be effective no later than June 1, 2015. This will allow the new President and the campus community to have ample time for a smooth and effective transition.
The Presidential Search Committee is pleased to report that we have completed the early pre-search activities and have now officially launched the search. Details here.
