“During our recent accreditation special visit, our institution received six commendations and one recommendation, that being “we recommend you keep doing what you’re doing. . . .

“Without reservation, I give Dr. McNaughton’s services my highest recommendation. If I was starting an institution or making an initial accreditation application, Drumm would be my first call. His insight into the unique environment of “SAV1” (initial accreditation) and practical, proactive knowledge and advice were, in my view, invaluable to LIGS and would benefit any SAV1 effort….Dr. McNaughton’s style is direct. Although he is well-versed in the nuances of higher education and the accreditation environment, his approach is practical, focused and results-driven. He speaks his truth in an unvarnished, direct and candid manor that stimulates action and results.” Todd Wieland – LIGS Accreditation

Upon coming on the board, he did a top to bottom review of all governance processes, and made several recommendations that have improved the board and how it governs the University….He has also become a valued advisor to me as board chair, helping me to both understand implications of board decisions on the future governance of the institution, as well as recommendations on how to better interact with University administration….Dr. McNaughton brings significant life and work experiences to his consulting and board service.
