Why you should work with Gold Hill Associates

A Community College Executive Search Firm

Gold Hill Associates is dedicated solely to community college executive searches. Operating since 1990, Gold Hill Associates has assisted over 100 community colleges in searches for new presidents and executives. We work in colleges throughout the country, from small rural institutions to sizeable urban multi-college districts. Our search procedures are effective and rely on input to the Board from a variety of constituents, without losing sight that the ultimate decision is that of the Board.
