Higher Education is a passion of the leadership of The Thinkubator. With more than 60 years of combined leadership experience, we have a committed group of executives focused on providing strategic consultancy and guidance to higher education leaders and nonprofit executives.

Structure follows strategy, as Peter Drucker once said. We are committed to helping institutions think about their strategic planning process and the development of a plan. We are a group of higher education professionals who have more than 60 years of combined experience in strategic planning and assisting institutions move in a direction that supports the mission of the college or university. We can assist from the beginning stages of forming a committee, developing a process that is conscious of the institutional culture to thinking through the strategies that will advance the institution to implementation and monitoring the plans performance. We are committed to helping small and mid-sized colleges and universities and nonprofit organizations succeed in a market that is rapidly constricting.
