Anna Maria College Presidential Search
To Members of the Anna Maria College Community,
As announced in July 2014, the Presidential Search Committee was established and the selection of R.H. Perry & Associates as the search firm to assist in recruiting and hiring the next president of Anna Maria College is accomplished. 
As we work toward selecting Anna Maria’s 12th president, the Search Committee will solicit input from the AMC community. We aim to make this process transparent and inclusive. To support that, this web page will serve as the repository for timely updates and information sharing throughout the search.
As can be expected, this process is comprehensive and takes time. The Board of Trustees anticipates the selection of AMC’s next leader in the spring of 2015. I am delighted to have the valued perspectives from faculty, students, alumni, staff and trustees involved with this important endeavor.
