Thomas More University Begins Search for Next President

Thomas More University officially launched the search for a permanent president this week.

The selected candidate will be the university's fifteenth president.

Kathleen Jagger has served as interim president since July, following the departure of David Armstrong who left for the president's job at St. Thomas University in Miami, Fla.

In a statement, the university said that it is seeking an accomplished and energetic executive who is a practicing Catholic who will model leadership reflective of Catholic values and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition of education.

Additionally, the university seeks a candidate with a doctorate or equivalent terminal degree with earned distinction as an institutional leader and fundraiser, preferable in a setting like Thomas More's Crestview Hills campus.

The TMU Search Committee, being assisted by the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB), will begin to review applications immediately and will continue until an appointment is made.

A new president is expected to be selected by May 1, 2019 and to take office by July 1, 2019.

Prior to becoming interim president, Jagger was vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college since 2015.
