Collegiate Counsel is founded on the principles of professional, practical and productive executive search. Our goal is to assist liberal arts colleges and universities in the recruitment of exceptional leaders to enhance their distinctive missions and unique cultures.
Collegiate Counsel's founder, Jon McRae, has served as an executive search consultant in higher education since 1984. He is nationally recognized as a leader in the profession, having personally completed searches for more than forty presidents and several hundred senior administrators.
Colleagues in the firm are Richard Pfau and Wayne Seelbach, accomplished college and university administrators. Dr. Pfau served as president of two liberal arts colleges and Dr. Seelbach served as provost and chief academic officer of a regional university and a private liberal arts college. Both have extensive and successful experience in attracting and evaluating leaders.
