Presidential Search

At the heart of CSM’s mission is a call to create experiences that empower women for success in life.

The Presidential Search Committee of College of Saint Mary (Omaha, NE), one of the nation’s most distinct Catholic institutions, invites applications, expressions of interest, and nominations of candidates in its search for the next president.

The search was launched in response to President Maryanne Stevens’ decision to retire in May 2023, following her celebrated and extraordinary 26-year tenure. In her successor, College of Saint Mary seeks a caring, community-oriented leader with great vision, an unshakeable commitment to social justice, and passion to ensure that College of Saint Mary continues to realize its mission of providing access to education for women in an environment that calls forth potential and fosters leadership.

The Search Process

Listening sessions with CSM constituencies and an online survey seeking insights and priorities for the next president were conducted in May 2022.  Recruitment for the search will begin this summer and extend into the fall.  The search committee’s evaluation of candidates will commence in the early fall and continue through the fall and early winter.  It is anticipated that finalists will visit campus in later fall or early winter and meet with the College’s constituencies.
