Presidential Search

Morehead State University is in the process of identifying our 14th president, following the announcement of Dr. Wayne D. Andrews' retirement in June of 2017. MSU's Board of Regents has appointed a  Search & Screening Advisory Committee and will employ an executive search firm to assist in the process. 

MSU delivers strong and affordable education for friendly, ambitious students who thrive in a student-focused learning environment defined by small class sizes and faculty committed to teaching and student success.

The University has served Eastern Kentucky for nearly 130 years, from its beginnings as a small teachers college to a university with more than 11,000 students from across the U.S. and abroad.

The search commences on Sept. 26 when the position will be advertised and recruitment and acceptance of nominations begins. This process concludes on Nov.14. You are encouraged to recommend or nominate candidates you believe deserve consideration by contacting:
