Through a multitude of meetings and interactions with hundreds of higher education senior leaders, I've come to understand the numerous issues currently facing colleges and universities today. Because of The Chronicle I had access to these leaders in academe where I was able to have high level discussions on these critical issues. I look forward to leveraging the research and consulting expertise of Eduventures to continue working with Provosts, Deans and other higher ed leaders to help them overcome these challenges."
