Consulting and Capacity Building
Penn AHEAD’S capacity building initiatives help senior university leaders, trustees, academic leaders, and policy makers advance their priorities and address pressing challenges. Our unique customized approach links research to practice, drawing on the expertise and deep experiences of the faculty and staff of Penn AHEAD and on an extensive network of experienced university leaders.
Our work focus on both U.S. and international higher education systems and institutions. Some areas in which we consult and advise include, but are not limited to, governance, leadership, access, quality assurance, policy, gender equity, institutional and system-level change, and university strategy.
We engage in short-term consulting efforts as well as long-term partner projects spanning a year or more.
