Provost Search

Dear Bellarmine Community Members,

We are excited to begin the important process of identifying Bellarmine University's next Provost.  The Provost will join our community at a pivotal moment, as we work together on our Strategic Plan, and following on the heels of our successful SACS reaccreditation.

Bellarmine has selected the national executive recruitment firm Isaacson, Miller (IM). IM supported Bellarmine during our presidential search. Much of IM's work is with institutions of higher education, and the firm has a strong record of recruiting leadership at Catholic colleges and universities. Our partnership with IM will continue through the winter and spring, and we expect an announcement of an appointment sometime before the end of the 2018-19 academic year.

We welcome all nominations, suggestions, and ideas, which can be shared directly with Isaacson, Miller, at:

The position profile for the search can be found there.

Many of you will be called on to provide insight and feedback throughout this process, and we thank you for your collegiality and teamwork.

In Veritatis Amore,
Dr. Helen Grace Ryan & Mr. Donald Berg
Provost Search Co-Chairs
