What our clients say

With the guidance of APC, our executive Cabinet has increasingly experienced positive results and grown closer as a team… I know I have personally benefitted from the insight and constructive direction that a skilled, outside observer can offer; and I strongly believe my executive cabinet has benefitted from the expertise and professional acumen and assessment APC has shared with us each year. Jeffrey D. Armstrong

President, California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo

The Center’s work helped accelerate my knowledge of the college’s senior leadership team and its culture, its organizational structures, the complex ecosystem in which it operates, the most immediate challenges, and promising opportunities it faced. The knowledge gained informed my allocation of time and energy during the first three months of my tenure and sharpened my focus on the important areas that needed attention. José Luis Cruz

President, Lehman College of the City University of New York

APC was instrumental in creating a space for self-improvement, professional development, and institutional transformation. The review resulted in needed changes by me, my team and my Board. The result has invigorated each of us in service to our students and their success. Sue Henderson

President, New Jersey City University
