Our experience and life-long dedication to the values of higher education and amateur intercollegiate athletics are what makes us unique.

How We Work

Having a small team with significant on-campus experience allows for a unique, highly focused and efficient level of service in analyzing and addressing challenges in today’s highly complex athletics landscape.
