The expertise, wisdom, and guidance that the principals of S4HE have provided to our national community of academic change-agents and innovators has been indispensable, and is unquestionably a key factor in our growth and success for more than a decade.  The need for their approach to personal and professional development, one that is grounded in higher education’s core values and best practices, is more important than ever in this time of unprecedented change and transformation.

National Center for Science and Civic Engagement


With the challenges we face in higher education today, colleges and universities need experienced and dedicated  partners to move the institution  forward.  I can always turn to the S4HE partners and associates to provide the direction and implementation for new  programs developments, assessment and evaluation while creating a culture of  cooperation and inclusion.

This is one of the more impressive leadership teams that I have known in my over thirty years of being a faculty member and academic leader.  The services that the group offers are greatly needed.  I will recommend S4HE to my colleagues, friends, and the many associates in my networks.
