Help your institution thrive

Struggling to move your college or university forward?

  • Want to innovate, but tight budgets are keeping you chained to the status quo?
  • Are student success outcomes not where you want them to be?
  • Are you passing up opportunities that could help your institution thrive?

National research tells us that, far too often, students leave college without earning a degree or certificate, missing the opportunity to realize their potential, change their lives, and — in some cases — break the cycle of multigenerational poverty. Colleges and universities need to innovate and continuously improve, or you risk contributing to barriers and failing to support student success.

We understand how to innovate, despite limited budgets.

With 20 years of experience in higher education and a track record for sourcing major grants and leveraging evidence-based practices to achieve strategic goals, we can help your institution move forward.

When you partner with EduStrategy, you’ll work with experts who know how to guide you through organizational planning, strategic project development, and the human side of change. We’ll do the heavy lifting to help you design — and fund — data-informed projects to impact student success and equip your teams to make the changes they need.

Get ready to win major grants and put your strategic priorities into action.
