Academic Keys is a comprehensive academic search firm that supports excellence in Higher Education. We are a group of academics and administrators who founded Academic Keys in 2002. Having been involved in academic searches at our colleges and universities, we felt search firm fees were unnecessarily exorbitant. As academics, we believe that funds are better invested elsewhere: in providing quality education. In this effort to provide quality education for all, we are dedicated to finding the most mutually beneficial partnerships for our clients. We are fully committed to, and embrace, a diverse and international clientele.
We are fully committed to sourcing a culturally rich and diverse candidate pool. Academic Keys is proud to have placed both women and minority candidates in ten of our recent searches. Each of our searches includes diversity advertising. We make every effort to deliver the most talented and diverse candidates to our clients. Our diversity advertising spans all classifications in the EEO-1, as well as protected veterans.
Our extensive database of more than one million potential candidates allows us to quickly source qualified applicants to ensure a timely search. We additionally source passive candidates through research, personal and professional networks, and a strong social media presence. Our streamlined process begins with a discussion to determine university goals, needs, and timelines.
