Dear Olin community,

We are delighted today to share the Olin presidential prospectus. It’s in many ways a direct outcome of all that we heard from you this spring. WittKieffer, our executive search firm, is using this prospectus to actively seek inquiries, nominations and applications from a wide range of sources. The position will also be advertised in print and online publications.

We still need your help, because the more widely we share this material, the more likely we are to develop a strong, diverse pool of candidates:

  • We ask all interested members of our community to share the prospectus or this direct link to WittKieffer with anyone whom you believe may be a good fit for this position.
  • Should you wish to nominate a candidate, please use this link to send the nominee’s name and contact information directly to WittKieffer.

Nominations will continue to be solicited through early fall.

We have also launched a new section for the presidential search on There you will find the prospectus, search updates, FAQs, and more. 

Thank you to those who have communicated with us so far to ask questions and share thoughts. Please feel free to reach out to us at any time with questions or concerns.

Best wishes for these last weeks of summer, 

Beverly Wyse                                                   Lynn Andrea Stein
