Quincy University’s Board of Trustees has retained the services of RH Perry & Associates to conduct the search for the 24th president of the university. The firm has begun working with the presidential search committee and will be on campus from March 21 – 23. Dr. Jean Scott and Mr. Matthew Kilcoyne, RH Perry’s search team, will meet with students, faculty, staff, alumni, Friars, and community members to discuss the qualities the Quincy University community is looking for in its next president.
“Our search committee vetted several companies to help in this process. I am confident that RH Perry can help us attract the best possible candidates that will lead the university for years to come,” said Mike McClain, presidential search committee chair.
