Why AACRAO?

Strategic Services that Come with a Strategic Advantage

Partner with AACRAO Consulting, and you’ll have unfettered access to our first-hand knowledge and experience with complex issues in today’s higher education environment. You’ll also have access to a number of strategic advantages that bring added value to your institution.

Customized Solutions
Your specific enrollment challenges call for creative, customized services — not a cookie-cutter approach. At AACRAO Consulting, we connect you to proven best practices while also developing innovative solutions that address your unique challenges, goals and institutional culture.

Full Lifecycle Services
While we can provide each of our services as a stand-alone consultation, we also offer integrated solutions that address your needs across the entire lifecycle of your students — from recruitment to retention to graduation and beyond. Our services are designed at unifying your disparate departments and processes as well, to support broader institutional goals. View our services.

Solution-Neutral Recommendations
Our recommendations are driven by your needs and objectives — and not by the sale of products. We take an objective, unbiased approach to identifying and recommending practical solutions that can be implemented immediately, and accommodate your budget, resources, and business practices as well as current technology investments.

Sustainability
Our priority is to identify and implement actionable strategies that continue generating results long after we’ve left your campus. Our services are designed to be reasonable to implement, maintain and evolve — using your internal resources and staff. We are interested in your long-term success, not in securing long-term contracts.

Exceptional Service
Our institutional clients benefit from the attentive service and responsiveness of a dedicated consultant focused on their needs. Your AACRAO consultant serves as an extension of your leadership team, working on your campus, at your conference table, side-by-side with your staff to reach your objectives.
