Sage counsel for new presidents

The NACU Presidential Advisors connects new presidents at NACU campuses with retired and Emeriti presidents for advice and mentoring. The advising service is included as a benefit of belonging to NACU and available to new presidents in their first two years. It includes up to six one-hour sessions.

Our cadre of Emeriti and retired presidents have experienced all the common and unique situations facing colleges and universities and the Office of the President. In addition to being available for general counsel on day-to-day leadership and campus management, presidential advisors have expertise in particular specialty areas. This will be an invaluable opportunity to access sage guidance during a new president’s transition into the role.

All conversations will be confidential.
