|EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SEARCH|
September 25, 2013
Dear IBHE Site Readers:
The Illinois Board of Higher Education is pleased to announce the opening of the search for the new IBHE Executive Director. With the planned retirement of Executive Director Harry Berman, the Board is prepared to identify someone who will continue to counsel, support, and inform our actions on behalf of the state of Illinois.
As you will read in the accompanying advertisement on this new site, we seek an individual who will bring a deep knowledge of higher education management to the position. He or she will have an understanding of national higher education trends and policy issues and will be a bold, forward-thinking, and imaginative strategic planner. Most important, the new Executive Director will be an advocate and fully committed to what Illinois higher education offers to individuals of all ethnic, cultural, and economic backgrounds. Applications and nominations are encouraged. The procedure for submitting the same also is posted on this site.
The IBHE Board is grateful for the outstanding service provided by Dr. Harry Berman in these last several months. We thank him and wish him well as he looks forward to retirement from his office in the coming year.
Illinois Board of Higher Education
