Maryland University of Integrative Health seeks an accomplished, compassionate leader who will serve as the respected head of the university while partnering with the Board in implementing a progressive and evolving strategy for excellence and growth. The new president will possess the experience, skills, and drive required to help shape the future of this innovative and progressive institution, while exemplifying the character and ethics expected in a highly visible and trusted university and community leader.

The University is a regionally accredited, private, non-profit graduate school that sits on 12 wooded acres in Laurel, Maryland, mid-way between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. MUIH holds prominence as one of only a handful of universities in the U.S. that are completely dedicated to natural medicine. For more than 40 years, MUIH has been educating and practicing in this rapidly growing field. Today, nearly 1,500 graduate students from throughout the nation and across the globe study on campus and online in one or more of the university’s master’s, doctoral, and certificate programs.

MUIH employs 189 faculty members, including 24 ranked faculty or full-time faculty. The remaining 165 faculty serve as adjunct faculty, guest lecturers, or clinical supervisors—many while maintaining their own professional practice in their field. Students range in age from 21 to 73 years old, and average 40 years old. While an increasing number of students move into MUIH programs directly from undergraduate school, the majority of are seeking a career change or a way to enhance their current career, with an increasing number preparing for their “encore” career after retirement.

They will be expected to promote the university’s visibility and reputation by demonstrating strong leadership and personal integrity. The next president will actively seek opportunities to increase awareness of the university and will effectively convey the university’s unique academic mission, strengths and values to all constituents.
