Higher Education

Lindauer earns high marks from education clients for our ability to identify talented professionals for America's preeminent colleges, universities, and research institutions.

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 management skill and finesse, vet ability to create and drive strategy, measure experience to mount large-scale and targeted campaigns, and discern builders from maintainers.

Our global database allows us to engage the best candidates, overcome marketplace obstacles, and successfully conduct multiple searches for a single institution.

Our team also recognizes the critical role of diverse leadership, inclusion and access across the education arena. Lindauer has been a relentless champion for diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher 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.
