Colleges and universities are facing the daunting task of adapting to a rapidly changing educational environment, while continuing to achieve their critical operational objectives. Issues that complicate matters for both public and private institutions include demographic shifts, increased tuition discounts, historic endowment losses and heightened accountability expectations to participate in government programs. We understand the pivotal decisions that institutions must make to address these and future challenges, while also fulfilling their commitment to students and faculty.
We develop specialized solutions to the emerging issues our higher education clients face, such as financial projections and operations to board training, tax compliance, alternative investments and endowment valuation. Our professionals work with hundreds of colleges and universities nationally, building a deep understanding of how to help you overcome challenges and accomplish your mission and goals.
