Description Significant turnover among senior leadership is expected in higher education. This study sought to examine the degree of succession planning for the top position in private higher education institutions in Wisconsin. Twenty-five in-depth qualitative interviews with presidents, board chairs, and search firms were conducted. A significant percentage of participants reported a lack of succession planning in higher education and further identified the tradition of academy as a considerable challenge to succession planning. Results of the study suggest key factors to ensure success in filling leadership roles in the future.
