This is the second institution where I have hired AACRAO consultant Dr. Green. His broad range of skills, ability to read an institution and quickly begin to provide suggestions and recommendations has been a critical element of our success. After one semester we were able to make enough changes that allowed us to have the largest spring class ever and meet enrollment targets for the first time in eight years.
Tom has the ability to work across departments and help explain the intricacies of Strategic Enrollment Management. His knowledge of academic and enrollment issues allows him to work successfully with faculty and staff. Tom's recommendations were always practical. He made his suggestions in the context of institutional realities. Having worked with consultants across my career, my experience with Tom is that he never tried to 'sell us' on anything...he made recommendations that would offer the best return for the investment of time and resources.
One of the most significant things Tom offers is that he is always trying to work himself out of a job. His goal is to develop institutional capacity, and he never makes a project bigger. I appreciate very much his commitment to my success and that of my institution and bottom line, I trust him!
