Millikin University selects Harold Jeffcoat to be its 14th president

Millikin University
November 16, 2010
The Millikin University board of trustees today announced the selection of Dr. Harold G. Jeffcoat as Millikin’s 14th president.

Jeffcoat brings more than 30 years of experience in higher education to Millikin, most recently serving as President and CEO for 10 years at Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth.

“After months of outstanding work by the presidential search committee, input from the campus community, and careful consideration by the board of trustees, we are pleased to announce Dr. Jeffcoat as Millikin’s next president,” remarked Mikel Briggs, chairman of the Millikin board of trustees. “Dr. Jeffcoat’s extraordinary experience and career accomplishments, combined with the dedication and talents of the campus community will help position Millikin to grow and improve, while serving our mission of delivering on the promise of education. We are excited to watch the next chapter of the Millikin story unfold.”

"Marie and I are excited to join the Millikin University family and the Decatur community,” remarked Jeffcoat. “The University's reputation for preparing students for meaningful and productive lives, the excellent faculty and loyal alumni, and the strong support of the Decatur community all make Millikin an exceptional place to live and learn."

Jeffcoat’s selection concludes a search process that began nearly a year ago. Millikin’s board of trustees launched a nationwide search shortly following outgoing president Douglas E. Zemke’s October 2009 retirement announcement to ensure the orderly, unrushed transition of leadership for the University. Jeffcoat was chosen from a pool of more than 80 applicants.

“As members of the board of trustees, we have no greater responsibility than protecting the health and vitality of the institution in which we serve,” remarked Briggs. “Selection of a president is one of the most important decisions we make as trustees, and we feel Dr. Jeffcoat’s significant experience in higher education provides the talent and expertise required of this position.”
