A search is now underway at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania to identify a vibrant, accomplished, visionary academic leader to assume the position of Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs. This webpage has been created so we can communicate with the ESU and the greater community regarding all matters related to the search process.

East Stroudsburg University strives to conduct a successful search resulting in the very best candidate for the position. To accomplish this goal, we have assembled a committee of individuals representing and complimenting various areas of ESU. Mr. David Bousquet, Vice President of Enrollment Management, has agreed to serve as committee chair. Witt/Kieffer, a leading recruitment consultant firm, will be heading the recruitment of candidates to be presented to the committee for consideration. The goal is to have the final candidates come to campus for interviews in early December, before the end of the semester.

This is an essential position for our university at a critical time, and we need your input during the search process. Please make sure that you participate in the process by attending the open forum sessions.

Thank you for your support of this process. I am optimistic that this search will result in the successful naming of a new Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at ESU.
