Presidential Search


Presidential Search

The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) Board of Trustees and Presidential Search Committee have begun the search for the University’s next President. The search was launched in response to President Diane Melby’s decision to retire in July 2022, following a celebrated six-year tenure. In her successor, OLLU seeks a community-oriented leader with great vision and the capacity to enhance the University’s profile and key strategic indicators.  

The University seeks a President who embraces its distinctive mission and core values, embodies a bold spirit, possesses significant administrative experience, and can attract new resources to the University. The candidate of choice will be a servant leader in the Catholic tradition with a highly relational approach, outstanding communication skills, humility, authenticity, self-confidence, a strong work ethic, and a clear understanding of higher education.

OLLU is working with Storbeck Search to assist in the search. The team includes Julie E. Tea, Managing Director, and Lindsay Allison, Senior Search Associate. Please send all confidential nominations, inquiries, and expressions of interest to:
