Tusculum has commenced the search for its next president.

Founded in 1794, Tusculum is Tennessee’s first college, the twenty-eighth oldest in the nation, and the oldest coeducational institution affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The wooded 140-acre Tusculum campus has nine buildings and the Tusculum Arch that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Dr. Nancy B. Moody, the first female to serve as president of Tusculum, will retire at the end of 2017. Dr. Moody has served as president since 2009. There have been many highlights to Dr. Moody’s tenure as president, including the construction of the Ronald H. and Verna June Meen Center for Science and Math.

There is much to be excited about in this era of growth and opportunity. Tusculum continues to expand its academic offerings with undergraduate degree programs in healthcare management, information technology, and talent development beginning in the fall of 2017 and a master’s degree in accountancy launching in the fall of 2018

In seeking a new president who will lead and advance the mission of Tusculum, the Board of Trustees has formed a Presidential Search Committee led by Trustee Dr. Gregory W. Nelson. The committee, composed of trustees, faculty and students will work closely with executive search firm Witt/Kieffer.
