Our primary purpose is to help colleges and universities improve the quality and quantity of student learning. We serve that purpose through the projects we do for clients, the work we do in collaboration with national and international organizations, and our own scholarship and writing. Every project we undertake – from academic and strategic planning to strengthening student services – is intended to support higher learning in higher education.
