Our firm, R. H. Perry & Associates is assisting the Board of Trustees of the College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE) in the search for a new President.  We would appreciate your recommendations or nominations of outstanding individuals for this unique opportunity.

 A vibrant and diverse community of learning in the Catholic liberal arts tradition, CSE is the only women¹s undergraduate college in New Jersey and offers co-educational continuing studies and graduate programs.  Located in Morristown, just west of New York City, the College of Saint Elizabeth enrolls 520 in the undergraduate Women¹s College and 1,167 men and women in continuing studies and graduate programs.  The College offers more than 25 baccalaureate degrees, 10 master¹s degree programs, a doctoral program in Educational Leadership, and a variety of professional certifications and certificates.

Under the leadership of President Sr. Francis Raftery, the College has made numerous positive strides forward, completing more than $54M in campus projects, including the Annunciation Center, the College¹s vibrant arts and education building; a fully wireless campus; and smart classrooms and state-of-the art biology and chemistry labs.  In 2008, CSE completed a $25M capital campaign.

The College¹s next president will build on that successful foundation both by embracing the College¹s rich history and looking to the future as a visionary, creative, and strategic thinker and transformative leader.
