Deerfield Associates Covid and Vaccination Alert
Deerfield Associates conducts executive searches for leadership positions at top ranked independent schools, colleges and universities across the country.
As the COVID-19 pandemic persists, our top priority is safety and compliance with the various protocols our clients have put into place to protect faculty, staff and students at their respective institutions. It is our policy to comply with those protocols and requirements.
Consequently, we request that every candidate review available health requirements of any institution at which the candidate seeks placement, subject to disability and religious accommodation exceptions under federal and state law. Our general understanding is that all employees of these institutions must be fully vaccinated against influenza and COVID-19 unless otherwise exempted. Again, we refer you to the policies of each potential employer, particularly in light of the rapidly changing nature of responses to the pandemic.
"I cannot say enough good things about the team at Deerfield Associates and the outstanding job they did helping us find and hire our Director of Institutional Advancement. Relationships are at the heart of any great school community and Doug, Susan, Greg, and the Deerfield Associates team clearly live by that in all that they do…”
