Robert M. O'Neil, President, University of Virginia, Charlottesville Written by a top search professional, this book presents all the information required to organize and successfully undertake an executive search for a nonprofit organization. The step-by-step approach takes the reader through the stages of the process and includes specific examples. The author notes that nonprofit organizations generally tend to form new search committees for each search, so the committees may lack organization or experience. This book focuses on the political aspects of the process, a lack of understanding of which generally precludes a successful search. All nonprofit organizations--including universities, symphonies, opera companies, museums, foundations, park boards, commissions, and municipal councils--will find this book a valuable resource. Institutional Search is organized around the process of the search. First, an analysis of the nonprofit institution provides background. Then, an overview of the search process leads to search committee formation, search specifications, nominations, the screening process, confidentiality, and cooperation within the committee. How to assess, research, approach and interview candidates is analyzed indepth. Other topics such as spousal relations, reference checking, closure, and introducing the individual hired to the organization are described. Institutional Search is a resource that provides search committees with an effective tool to aid in the complex search process.

A presidential transition has a major impact on the life of an institution. Hundreds of presidential transitions take place annually, and when they are not amicable and carefully orchestrated, they can scar both the institution and the president. Sanaghan, Goldstein, and Gaval estimate that more than one-third of the presidential
