6. Helping outside organizations connect to the world of higher education
Academia is a complex subculture with its own rituals, terminology, and expectations. Knowing how to penetrate this subculture as an outsider can be challenging. As a higher education veteran who has the trust and respect of chief academic officers, I help outside organizations gain a hearing within that world. Whether it’s a third-party study abroad program, an online platform for course-sharing, or an innovative educational product, if an organization has something of value to offer to colleges and universities, I have the expertise and connections to get their service in front of key academic stakeholders.
