The Board of Trustees at Sherman College of Chiropractic has begun a search for the college’s next president, says Chairman Peter Kevorkian, D.C. The board is looking for a new leader to take the college to its next level of growth.
Sherman’s fourth president, Jon C. Schwartzbauer, D.C., announced May 24 that he is stepping down; Schwartzbauer will oversee day-to-day operations and serve the college as needed while the Board of Trustees conducts its search. Schwartzbauer has served as the college’s president since 2007, leading the college through reaffirmation of both institutional and programmatic accreditation, improving student learning and patient care, and implementing a comprehensive chiropractic curriculum.
Kevorkian says the board is seeking nominations and applications for a proven and dynamic leader to serve as the organization’s president. “The successful candidate will have a strong track record in inspiring, motivating and leading a senior management team and will take on the significant leadership role of representing Sherman College’s vision in the chiropractic profession,” he shares.
The college president will report to the Board of Trustees and should have a distinguished record of leadership, management and service in his/her field (D.C. preferred) including higher education, business and/or government experience and excellent written and verbal communication skills. Nominations and applications (see details here) should be addressed to the college, to the attention of the Presidential Search Committee, and should be submitted by July 31, 2012.
