Lindauer has deep and proven executive search expertise in Education, from complex research universities to vibrant liberal arts colleges to thriving community colleges, and from secondary to elementary education to unique learning environments world-wide.

Our Consultants understand the intersections of faculty and research; enrollment management and admissions; student and residential life; diversity, equity and inclusion; fundraising and finance; operations and marketing; analytics, data, and more. We understand how to explore whether an educational leader, front line fundraiser, or department administrator has the skills to handle complex environments, mature and emerging programs, and intense community engagement.

We will assess leadership and management capabilities, vet ability to create and drive strategy, measure experience to mount large-scale and targeted initiatives, and discern builders from maintainers.

Lindauer has also been a relentless champion for diversity, equity, and inclusion in education since the firm’s founding. Our team today continues its leadership and advocacy in equity and anti-racism through our work with Boards, leaders, hiring managers, search peers, a trusted network of industry advisors and consultants, and an extraordinary roster of talented professionals.
