The search for Michigan Technological University’s 10th president is underway. We seek a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and transformative leader who will work with the entire University community to advance our mission of creating a just, prosperous, and sustainable world.
On April 13, 2018, the Michigan Technological University Board of Trustees elected Richard J. Koubek, executive vice president and provost of Louisiana State University, to be the University's 10th president. Koubek will succeed President Glenn D. Mroz on July 1, 2018.
Michigan Technological University is a leading public research institution on the rise. The next president will inherit and build upon President Glenn D. Mroz’s remarkable momentum, the University’s strong financial position, and its commitment to interdisciplinary, integrated learning and research. Following President Mroz’s announcement on April 5, 2017, that he will be returning to faculty after his 13-year presidency, the Board of Trustees launched a search for Michigan Tech’s tenth president with high expectations.
The Michigan Tech community seeks an innovator with dynamic leadership experience, who demonstrates the imagination, courage, and capability to advance an entrepreneurial vision in STEM fields, provide new ideas to move the institution forward, and leverage the University’s unique qualities to sustain its position as a leading-edge public research institution.
At Michigan Technological University, we create the future. We invite seriously interested candidates who share our passion for inspiring community, scholarship, possibilities, accountability, and tenacity to apply for the president position.
