University Performance Improvement Solutions

We partner with clients to deliver solutions that better organize and manage the operations that support their missions, drawing on experience and best practices attained from hundreds of engagements. Our expertise spans across all core functional areas of higher education administrative operations, while our approach focuses on yielding results and helping our clients to continuously improve. 

Huron assists clients with strategic assessments that comprehensively span the institution, that involve a more limited set of functional areas, or that target a specific functional area.  Each project is driven by the institution’s objectives, priorities, and environment.  Our assessments include evaluating organizational alignment, business processes, technology utilization, and financial and operational performance.

Ultimately, success is measured by our ability to provide the institution with specific practical, actionable recommendations for improvement and to help implement those changes yielding cost reduction, process efficiency, quality, and improved stakeholder satisfaction.
