Florida State University — a Top 20 public research institution and a preeminent university as designated by the Florida Legislature — is conducting a national search for its 16th president.

This website will be updated with information as parameters and a timeline are determined for the national search process.


UPDATE: November 18, 2020

The Presidential Search Advisory Committee voted unanimously to engage in negotiations with Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates to lead the search for the next president of Florida State University. Since 2007, Storbeck/Pimentel has led nearly 400 senior executive searches on behalf of clients in higher education and nonprofit institutions, including the 2014 presidential search and numerous searches for vice presidents, deans and other executives at Florida State University. Most recently, Storbeck/Pimentel led presidential searches for the University of Central Florida and the University of California. The committee plans to meet again in early December to develop a candidate profile.
