Seeking a leader for the future

St. Cloud State University seeks an engaging president who will be a strong leader and proponent of the university's mission, with demonstrated commitment to student success. 

The next president of St. Cloud State University will lead us through our 150th anniversary, the launch of our University Foundation’s Comprehensive Campaign, and the continuation of a brand marketing strategy. We pride ourselves on our partnerships and our close relationships with the city and with the Central Minnesota region St. Cloud State calls home. We are looking for a president who will engage with our partners to take these relationships one step further.
