EIU Presidential Search

On Oct. 6, 2021, during his annual State of the University address, Dr. David Glassman, president of Eastern Illinois University, announced it would soon be time for the university to identify his successor:

"... I want to share my plans directly with the EIU community. I am announcing my plan today to accept a new contract for one year if our Board of Trustees so desires. To be clear, the new contract would extend my presidency at EIU through June of 2023. At that time, I will retire from the presidency with a current plan to return to the faculty as professor of anthropology. This timeline will provide the Board of Trustees and our various campus constituencies maximum time to conduct a timely and thorough search for EIU’s next president."
