INSIGHTS IN HIGHER ED
There are two components of this: one where agreement may be found, and one where there will be disagreement. The first is the general acceptance that education—and especially higher education–has to be faster, better and less expensive. However, the second, that higher education needs to be more accessible to people.
The year 2020 has been one for the books. However, we’ve reached Thanksgiving—and that means it is the perfect time to flip the paradigm and focus on the good. This experiment that is known as the United States of America is not perfect; however, our nation is growing and every citizen shares the common goal of seeing our nation prosper (even though we may not agree on how to achieve that mark).So in honor of Thanksgiving, we want to suggest 7 different reasons (in no particular order) why we’re thankful for this year.
With the various factors (the pandemic, the recent election, social unrest, etc.) roiling the nation, reputation management and crisis management have never been more important in higher education. This podcast features Bill Coletti, the CEO of Kith. His company has worked with a number of institutions, including large universities who faced outcries due to sexual harassment challenges as well as institutions that are undertaking mergers.
OUR CONSULTING SERVICES FOR HIGHER EDUCATION TRANSFORMATION
The higher education industry is undergoing changes never before seen in colleges and universities. Driven by COVID; current and projected steep declines in enrollment, and especially in international students; technology, and the cost and perceived lack of value of obtaining a college education, higher education institutions are being forced to deal with revolutionary change well before it was expected.
These changes require higher education institutions to think deeply about how they operate.

OUR APPROACH TO CHANGING HIGHER ED
Holistic thinking is key
Systemic problems require holistic thinking. Cross-disciplinary thinking. Experience from multiple industries. Determining what is important and critical, versus what is nice to have. Basically, a change in thinking, because as Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems with the same thinking we used to create them.”
In essence, we help you redesign your university holistically, and thus ensuring that you get the outcomes and results you want and need that get you focused on your institutional mission, serving students and preparing them for their lives and career.
