The search is under way to find the next president of Texas State University. President Denise M. Trauth, who served the university for 20 years, announced her retirement in August 2021 and will continue until her successor arrives on campus during the Summer 2022.
Starting in September 2021 and continuing through February 2022, an Advisory Search Committee, made up of faculty, staff, student, alumni and community representatives, will work with an executive search firm, Russell Reynolds Associates, to conduct a national search and identify a small number of exceptionally-qualified candidates to recommend to Chancellor Brian McCall for his consideration.
A sole finalist will be selected by the Chancellor and will be publicly announced in March 2022. After the public announcement, by state law there is a 21-day waiting period before approval by the Texas State University System Board of Regents.
During the waiting period, the sole finalist will be introduced to the campus community through a series of open forums and meetings with key stakeholders, including faculty, staff, students, and community members.
