Tennessee Wesleyan University Presidential Search


In November 2021, Tennessee Wesleyan announced that current president, Dr. Harley Knowles, would step down effective June 30, 2022. Following the announcement, the University Board of Trustees began the formation of a search committee. The committee then selected executive search firm, WittKiefer,  to assist with the search. The committee is now focused on identifying qualified leaders,  interviewing potential candidates,  and ultimately selecting the next president of TWU. 

Mr. Jim Winer, Board of Trustee member and former Chairman of the Board, has been appointed chairman of this committee. He will provide updates throughout the process to the campus community and the extended campus family.
