Search and hiring
P.O. Box 162
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.
Every search firm has distinguishing credentials. We believe we’re unique in our commitment to both identifying and developing leadership. As the subsidiary of the American Academic Leadership Institute, we provide significant funds each year to deliver professional development programs to more than 80 educators who have been nominated by their campuses to enhance their leadership potential. Furthermore, many of our consultants volunteer each year to assist other organizations in their leadership programs.

They are 1.8 times more likely to be ready for change and have 2.3 times higher cash flow per employee.
