    The Board of Trustees has announced the search for the 16th president of Capital University. Following President Denvy A. Bowman’s announcement in April that he intends to retire from the presidency at the end of the fiscal year, the Board of Trustees initiated a national search to identify a new visionary to lead the University toward a dynamic future. A 16-member Presidential Search Committee inclusive of student, faculty, staff, alumni and trustee representation was convened by the Board. AGB Search, an executive search firm that focuses exclusively on higher education leadership, has been retained to facilitate strategic recruitment.

    Chaired by Board Vice Chair Bernie Ostrowski, the search committee has organized a series of discovery conversations with University stakeholders, internal and external, to gauge expectations of the new president, and to articulate a clear agenda for Capital’s next leader. The search committee invites nominations and applications for this distinctive leadership assignment.

    Currently enrolling a diverse student body of nearly 3,500, Capital serves traditional undergraduates, graduate students, adult students completing a baccalaureate degree, and those in specific licensure or certification programs. The next president will be presented with widespread institutional strength and motivation from which to develop Capital as one of the Midwest’s strongest comprehensive private universities. This opportunity for energetic, visionary, entrepreneurial, and visible leadership is uncommonly attractive.
