Keeping Up with AGB Search

Welcome to In Brief. We’ll keep you up to date on AGB Search news and share our recent articles on higher education hiring trends.

Rod McDavis
Managing Principal 
AGB Search is collaborating with clients on the best ways to conduct searches virtually. Managing Principal Rod McDavis offers guidance on how to conduct searches during the coronavirus crisis: "If your institution is in the early stages of a search, it is still quite practical to proceed with the initial stages of the process through technological means."

Dr. McDavis' article " Conducting a Successful Leadership Search in a Pandemic" appears in Inside Higher Ed.

The AGB Institute for Leadership & Governance in Higher Education brings together top education leaders to share their insider knowledge and skills with those aspiring to a higher education presidency. AGB Search is pleased to announce applications for the Class of 2021 are now being accepted through October 30 ; in addition, nominations for candidates are now being accepted through September 30. You won't want to miss this highly informative and interactive program.
AGB Consulting has launched a new open forum,  Ask the Expert , to provide the institutions it serves with accessible, immediate guidance from   AGB experts in  “ask-me-anything” sessions regarding COVID-19 impacts, decision-making, and risks. Unlike AGB webinars, these sessions are discussion-driven and not recorded.

AGB offers 15 critical topics and multiple time slots.
