Presidential Search

The Berklee Board of Trustees is conducting a comprehensive, nationwide search with guidance from a search committee for a new president.

The selection of our next president will continue our legacy, and will build on the efforts of our community to shape a unified mission, vision, and strategic plan by infusing this work with fresh ideas and perspectives that will guide our institution’s future. We are enthusiastic about working to turn this vision into reality and chart a strong path forward for Berklee.
