St. Norbert College to Change Leadership After Academic Year

From St. Norbert College, November 1, 2019
by Mike Counter,, 920-403-3089

St. Norbert College announced today that President Brian Bruess will conclude his service to the college on June 30, 2020. Bruess made the following announcement in an email to the college community this morning:

It has been a privilege to lead St. Norbert College, my wife Carol's and my Alma Mater, for these past three years. Our students are inspiring, and the staff and faculty are wildly talented and deeply committed to the education of our students. Moreover, the student experience is vibrant and our outcomes are uncommon and speak for themselves.

With regard to the future direction of St. Norbert College, I will not be seeking a renewal of my contract. I will complete this academic year, follow through on our collective agenda to be a nationally recognized Catholic liberal arts college, and provide steady and faithful support to the Board of Trustees in the search for my successor.

We have accomplished remarkable results, together, and I leave the College in exceptional shape, poised for the next leader of this great institution. While this is not the news you expected to receive from me today, know that I make this decision in full confidence of the mission and future of St. Norbert College: docere verbo et exemplo.

Bruess began as the college’s eighth president in July 2017. Details about the search process for a new president will be shared as soon as they are available.
