Biography

Ruth Prescott, J.D.

Chief of Staff

As chief of staff, Ruth Prescott counsels the president, board, and executive team on strategies to enhance the operating efficiency of the National Park Foundation. Prior to joining the organization, Prescott spent 25 years in higher education where she served in a variety of leadership positions at Texas A&M University, Baylor University, Mississippi State University, and New Mexico State University, including chief of staff roles for presidents and provost, as well as staffing two governing boards.

Within the university context, Prescott addressed many issues associated with the administration of large, complex institutions of higher education, including legislative and governing board matters, sensitive personnel issues, athletic department activities (including conference-related matters), faculty misconduct investigations, development of academic policies and procedures, pre-litigation activities and academic space planning. She was also responsible for managing academic service units such as information technology, registrar, academic outreach/continuing education, and the offices of the president and provost.

As a consultant to universities and governing boards on executive searches, Prescott has been called upon to chair numerous executive and leadership searches, including presidential, vice presidential, and chief development officer searches. Through this work, she has developed significant insight into the nature of the relationship between senior leadership and governing boards. That expertise has led to frequent recruitment of staff and management of strategic projects on behalf of the leadership and board.

Prescott holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Stephens College and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Florida.
