Presidential Search

SUNY Old Westbury has commenced a search for its sixth president.

The college has retained RPA, Inc., a leading search firm serving higher education institutions across the nation, to assist in the search.

A Search Committee of 16 representing all campus constituents includes a student; an alumnus; members of our college council, faculty, and staff; a trustee from our dedicated not-for-profit foundation board; as well as a representative from SUNY administration. The committee will work with RPA to review candidates and participate in all meetings and interviews. 

The college, via its College Council, will submit three top candidates to SUNY Chancellor Kristina Johnson for consideration and appointment as the college’s next president.

The Presidential Search pages contain all public information relevant to the search process.

If you have questions about the search process, please email Lillian Colella, who is serving on the Search Committee as the college staff liaison (non-voting member).
