A number of universities around the world face financial pressures like never before - brought about by factors such as enrollment decline, competitive forces, rising operational costs and decrease in endowments. In response to this issue and following a sense of duty and care, the Docere Group was formed by a team of financial and academic experts for one sole purpose – to revive ailing colleges and universities.
According to Dr. Neal King, Docere Group principal, and Chairman of the International Association of University Presidents, “Our firm is aware that many universities face unprecedented fiscal challenges and some even the prospect of bankruptcy. Through our experience, networks, and investor contacts we hope to be a beacon of hope for the institution’s survival and revitalization.”
A newly established firm, the Docere Group is engaged with university trustees, executives and investors worldwide - strategizing their business success. The Docere Group offers the following services: Institutional Funding, Joint Venture, Mergers & Acquisitions, CEO/Board Level Placements, and Management Consulting.
Docere principals Drs. Neal King and Mark Munoz, Professor of Business at Millikin University and former Harvard fellow, are also in the midst of completing an edited book entitled “Strategies for University Management.” The book assembles the viewpoints of over 20 university presidents and other academic leaders from around the world and explores strategies for success in the academy in these challenging times.
Dr. King adds, “This is indeed a complex time for many academic institutions. While countless difficulties exist, so do unique opportunities. Institutions are wise to start innovating aggressively and thinking in creative ways. Docere is here to facilitate the process and the financial means for academic institutions to transform themselves.”
