St. Norbert College is pleased to announce that Jeffrey Frick, dean and academic vice president, is one of 20 senior college administrators selected by the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) to participate in the 2018-19 yearlong Presidential Vocation and Institutional Mission program for prospective college and university presidents.

Frick, a member of the president’s cabinet at St. Norbert College, earned his A.B. from Augustana College and his Ph.D. from Loyola University of Chicago. Since 2010, he has served as the chief academic officer of St. Norbert College with oversight of academic programs, athletics, curriculum and faculty development. He also serves as a liaison on academic issues with the board of trustees and the administrative team.

The seminar-based program is designed to help individuals with the potential to serve as college and university presidents clarify the alignment between their personal and professional values and goals and the missions of institutions they might lead in the future. With a wave of retirements of university presidents on the horizon, it is especially important that individuals who become new presidents are well suited to the culture of the institution. The program aims to produce presidencies that are long lasting, highly effective, and satisfying to both the individual and the institution. Participants will engage in two seminars, participate in consultations with experienced facilitators, and undertake a series of readings about the vocation of college presidents and the role of vision and mission in institutional leadership.

The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) is an association of 770 nonprofit independent colleges and universities, state-based councils of independent colleges, and other higher-education affiliates that works to support college and university leadership, advance institutional excellence and enhance public understanding of independent higher education’s contributions to society.
