York University has opened a nationwide search for a president to succeed Dr. Sam Smith. Under his leadership, York has enriched its academic offerings, enhanced faculty strength, enjoyed financial stability, and set new fund-raising records both for operational budgets and for endowment.

The York University Board of Trustees welcomes applicants with lives of deep spiritual maturity and a genuine heart for students. Applicants should have a solid record of success in demanding leadership roles, proven skills in financial management, and experience in fund-raising. A terminal degree is strongly preferred.

The successful candidate must be a longtime member of the Church of Christ and committed to maintaining York’s historic ties to that fellowship. York offers degrees in eleven academic departments, offering twenty-five different undergraduate majors, along with graduate programs in education, organizational leadership, and healthcare administration. Current enrollment is at an all-time high, with a student body which is one of the most diverse in the Midwest. YU on-campus students, this past year, came from thirty-three different states and twenty-one different countries.
