Spelman Johnson provides outstanding search and consulting services to institutions of higher education based on three key principles: ethics, communication, and service. We strive for clear and direct communication with clients and candidates. We endeavor to make the best use of available resources in facilitating the smooth and efficient delivery of services, operations, and processes. And, we believe that every client and every candidate should expect nothing less than honest and ethical efforts, on their behalf, at every juncture of the search process.
During our twenty-eight year history, Spelman Johnson has cultivated and supported a diverse, national network of professionals of color within higher education. The relationships we establish in the course of our work with multi-cultural professional groups and associations are part of an overall corporate commitment to the advancement of underrepresented professionals within higher education. During our history, 52 percent of our searches have been completed with the hire of a woman, and persons of color have been hired into 24 percent of our positions. Of the women we have placed throughout our history, 62 percent remain in their positions or have been promoted to higher positions within the client institution; 68 percent of the persons of color remain in their positions or have been promoted within the client institution.
