Experienced presidents can help you educate your board

The demographic and financial challenges for higher education have been apparent for quite some time.

So why haven’t institutions adequately adapted to overcome these obstacles?
What will it take to prepare your campus for a sustainable future?

In our client work, we find that decision makers don’t need another consultant to show them the environmental data one more time. Presidents, cabinets, and boards want to know what to do – and how to do it.

We can help you educate your board and kick-start strategic thinking to move your university in a new and viable direction. Would your board be interested in hearing from recent, real world, on-the-ground leaders like:

  • Dr. Mark Huddleston, president emeritus of the University of New Hampshire, who led the university’s largest fundraising campaign, drove significant enrollment growth in a declining market, integrated a law school, and inspired new private/public partnerships;
  • Dr. Anthony S. Caprio, president emeritus of Western New England University, who moved a regional college to university status, not just in name but through significant development of professional graduate programs and interdisciplinary undergraduate programs while also securing WNE’s fiscal stability;
  • Dr. Kevin F.F. Quigley, former president of Marlboro College, who prompted and managed the merger of Marlboro with Emerson College and the sale of the Marlboro campus to an educational non-profit organization;
  • Dr. Matthew Poslusny, currently provost at Meredith College, who has had a key role in this women’s college’s enrollment and financial viability through regular academic innovation and tight connections between student services and academic programming.
