The presidential search committee has selected Storbeck Search as its partner in the presidential search process.

Storbeck Search has a deep commitment to serving liberal arts colleges and their team shares our value of the transformative nature of this education and the Whitman experience. They bring expertise and a breadth of knowledge of the higher education landscape, including from leading recent presidential searches at places such as Colorado College, Carleton College, and Haverford College. They have delivered results in providing diverse and talented candidates that led to successful hires: half their placements are women and 30% are persons of color, and since 2007, 87% of their presidential placements are either still in place or served for five years or more.
