After nearly ten years of successful and accomplishment-filled tenure as President of Lawrence Technological University, Virinder K. Moudgil has announced his intention to retire at the end of the current calendar year. Hence, the University’s Board of Trustees announce a nationwide search for a new President who will further the University’s excellence.
Lawrence Technological University (LTU), founded in 1932 and located in Southfield, Michigan, is one of America’s top universities for students seeking a superb education with great career preparation and an affordable price. It is rated “Top Tier” by U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” and is ranked among the “Best in the Midwest” by The Princeton Review. It offers its approximately 3,000 students over 100 associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in Colleges of Architecture and Design, Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and Business and Information Technology. Private and fully-accredited, LTU employs nearly 400 full- and part-time faculty and has an annual operating budget of approximately $72 million. Lawrence Tech is a member of the prestigious Association of Independent Technological Universities (AITU).
Reporting to the Board of Trustees, the President is the chief executive officer of the University and is responsible for its effective management and administration. The Board is seeking an exemplary leader who has vision and understands the challenges and opportunities facing a private technological university in the 21st Century. It is expected that the next President will be an accomplished fund- and friend-raiser; a tireless promoter of the quality of education afforded by Lawrence Technological University; an exemplary communicator with outstanding speaking and writing abilities; and an inspirational academic leader who has passion for and articulates the vision/mission of LTU in changing lives of the students through enlightenment within the University and outside world.
The President will be an excellent leader with the ability to attract top-caliber administrators, faculty, and staff. The selected individual will have an appreciation for an excellent faculty and will lead through a collegial and consensus-building approach.
