K&A brings expertise and wisdom that grows from working with diverse institutions over many years. Our senior consultants are recognized leaders and scholars in higher education who have served as president, provost, vice president, and executive director; they have been elected to office in and served on governing and advisory boards of national professional organizations. They continue to think, write, publish, deliver keynotes, and present at conferences. The most unique part of working with us is what clients call the “K&A experience.” It is what sets us apart from any other firm in higher education.

We enjoy our work and each other. We have a passion for excellence. We are exceptional problem solvers. We are known as “truth tellers.” We assist clients with their goals for accelerating change. We help our clients think strategically. We are intellectually rigorous. We emphasize practical, sustainable change.  We make our consulting projects educational and transformative.

More than anything else, we believe in the power and value of higher education; we work to support colleges and universities in realizing their potential.
