Welcome to Western Kentucky University

Western Kentucky University is in the process of identifying the 10th president in the university’s history following Dr. Gary Ransdell’s announcement that he will retire in 2017. WKU’s Board of Regents has appointed a search committee and will employ an executive search firm to help in the search process. The search committee will present a list of three-to-five candidates to the full Board of Regents, which will act as the selection committee. The goal is to appoint the new president by March 2017.
