Concordia University Texas Board of Regents invites nominations and applications for the University's 10th President. Concordia University Texas (CTX) seeks a strategic, inspiring, and creative servant leader who brings a highly relational personality and champions a collaborative leadership style. He or she will be a person of strong faith who ensures that the campus remains Christ-centered, fully embracing and modeling its Lutheran identity. The next president will build upon an extended era of successful leadership to ensure continued financial stability while taking advantage of the opportunities for enrollment and resource growth presented within the dynamic Austin community and the state of Texas. Candidates must be an active member of a Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregation.

The next president will have a visible presence on campus while working to build CTX's external brand and visibility. The successful candidate will embrace the University's new self-governance structure (including the use of the Carver policy-based model of governance) and work to build relationships across the greater Austin community and with LCMS ministries across the country.

CTX stands as a distinguished Christian institution in Austin, offering a diverse array of dynamic undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs centered around dialogue and personal growth. As the premier Christian university in Austin, CTX is committed to fostering an environment where students from all backgrounds can thrive.

CTX is committed to its Christian roots, its alignment with the theology and doctrine of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod, and its resolve to be a part of the mission of the church at-large. Serving about 1,600 undergraduate and 275 graduate students with a blend of traditional and online courses and programs, the institution caters to the needs of a modern and dynamic student body. CTX employs 180 faculty and staff members, each of whom is dedicated to the University's mission of preparing students to serve and lead with integrity and purpose.

Situated in the vibrant landscape of Austin, the University's scenic nature-preserve campus of about 400 acres provides an inspiring backdrop for academic exploration and personal development. In addition to its main campus, CTX runs two satellite campuses that host its ABSN (Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program, both in Austin and Dallas.

The next president of CTX will have the opportunity to lead a university with a clear mission, vision, and values, and with considerable momentum. Similar to most independent, faith-based institutions, increasing enrollment, maintaining financial health, and a continuing commitment to its Christian identity will be at the top of the leadership agenda. The president will advance the totality of the CTX mission and the primacy of student success.
