The search is underway to find the next President of the University of Delaware.

Current President Patrick T. Harker is stepping down June 30 to become President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. Nancy Targett, Dean of the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, will serve as Interim President, effective July 1, during the search process.

The Board of Trustees has appointed a 15-member Presidential Search Committee, with representatives from key University constituencies, including the Board, faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni, and the globally recognized search firm Russell Reynolds Associates has been retained to assist with the recruitment of the next President.
