“AASCU Consulting’s work helped accelerate my knowledge of the college’s senior leadership team and its culture, its organizational structures, the complex ecosystem in which it operates, the most immediate challenges, and promising opportunities it faced. The knowledge gained informed my allocation of time and energy during the first three months of my tenure and sharpened my focus on the important areas that needed attention.”
