Every higher education institution undergoes a presidential transition at some point. Following the journey of a presidential leadership change—from its announcement, through the search process, and into the first years of the new leader's tenure—will better prepare you for this shift. Learn about the CBO’s role in fostering a smooth transition, including how to determine presidential salaries, draft contracts, and explore benefit options. Discover how to best interact with the search committee and search firm, work with the outgoing president, and help colleagues on campus succeed under new leadership.
