Colleges, universities and online education delivery systems are in a major transition period as they adapt to new consumer demands and regulatory issues. In education, more so than in other areas, policy is often driven by large stakeholder groups. Our team understands these dynamics and is particularly effective in helping clients leverage influential education stakeholder groups to achieve desired regulatory and legislative outcomes.
