Presidential Transition Update - Kuyper College Retains Search Agency to Aid in Presidential Search

April 18, 2016

Kuyper College has retained JobfitMatters to assist in the search for its next president. With their assistance, the Presidential Transition Team will conduct the search process and will, in turn, make candidate recommendations to the Board of Trustees. The Board will make the final hiring decision.

JobfitMatters is a nationally-recognized expert in recruiting presidents and cabinet-level leaders for nonprofit organizations with a specialty in faith-based higher education. Since 1995, they have assisted in more than 200 cabinet-level searches. Relevant experience includes searches with Dordt College, Biola University, and Holland Christian Schools.

JobfitMatters’ goal is to find the right fit between Kuyper College and its next president. As such, their first step is to better understand Kuyper and gain perspective about the desired characteristics of a new president. To that end, over the next several weeks they will be conducting surveys of and interviews with Kuyper College Board members, faculty, staff, students, alumni and other stakeholder groups.

As the search process continues, the transition team covets your prayers. If you have additional thoughts or questions, please direct them to
