With numerous years of leadership experience in higher education, Richard Ludwick most recently served as president of the Independent Colleges of Indiana, the nation’s oldest state association of private colleges, serving 31 institutions and 100,000 students. In that role since 2010, Richard has helped dramatically increase student funding and grow revenue, including philanthropic gifts. 

In addition, Richard has served as the commissioner for the Midwest Higher Education Compact (an interstate collegiate commission) and the Coalition for College Cost Savings, a national organization with nearly 1,000 college and university members. Richard becomes president of the University of St. Thomas in July, 2017.
