Presidential Search

Occidental College is conducting a national search for its 17th president.

The College has a rich tradition of academic excellence, innovative thinking, and a commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive campus community. The next president will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the College around these priorities.

The Board of Trustees has assembled a Presidential Search Advisory Committee with representation from campus stakeholders to lead this process. The committee will host forums and provide surveys for the full College community to share thoughts on the qualities, priorities, and aspirations the new president should possess.
