Consulting

Your trusted and experienced education consultants.

Institutions from all across the country come to us for our expertise in higher education. We get to know your institution through a thorough, on-campus interview and discovery process. We then provide in-depth analysis and recommendations on all the critical functions of marketing, enrollment and retention. We partner with you over the following months, helping to set goals and putting strategies in place to ensure the goals are achieved.

We understand the burden preparing for accreditation and reaffirmation review places on institutions, their faculty, and staff. For that reason, we are pleased to offer accreditation review auditing and consulting services for colleges and universities.

Our accreditation consulting team is led by Dr. William B. Drake, Jr., a former SACSCOC Trustee and College President who has chaired and served on over 27 SACSCOC Committees and 15 National Accreditation Committees. We have the experience and resources to help your institution through every stage of the process.

Our team relies heavily on data to drive all marketing strategies. We first determine what makes your institution stand out in the marketplace and identify your target student demographic. Based on that information, we build a unique plan that effectively positions your online and on-campus programs so that they reach the appropriate audience.

Our market research expert has worked with more than 75 higher education institutions, in the U.S. and abroad, and has delivered more than 350 market viability studies, online program portfolio reviews, and online degree program competitive analyses to help institutions improve the performance of existing online programs as well as assist them in launching new programs.
