    Pursuant to Shaw University’s Board of Trustees manual, the Board has the responsibility of selecting the President. In order to ensure that the best candidates are identified, the Board has appointed a Presidential Search Committee to conduct a thorough review of potential nominees for the Presidency and to make recommendations to the Board regarding the nominees. The Board and the Presidential Search Committee are committed to using the search process as an opportunity to receive input from and to have conversations with individuals from the wide range of constituencies that are integral to Shaw's continued role as one of the world's leading institutions of higher learning. To that end, the search process has been designed to permit open and broad engagement across the Shaw community, both on campus and around the country.

    HEAL Global Consulting, a division of HEAL Global, Inc. that provides strategic consulting services to businesses and executive search services to the higher education industry, is assisting with the presidential search.
