At the Institute for Effectiveness in Higher Education, we believe the spirit of community and collaboration is a big part of what makes working in the field of higher ed so rewarding. Since we have greatly benefited–both as an organization and as individuals–from this culture of sharing ideas and best practices, we feel it only makes sense to do our part to embrace and uphold this tradition. We are committed to exploring new ideas and actively pursing ways to use data to increase the effectiveness of higher education institutions.


At the Institute for Effectiveness, we are committed to expanding our reach to help others learn through our coaching, trainings, workshops, and courses.  Join our newsletter to be the first to receive updates on new learning opportunities as well as being an alpha or beta tester for upcoming courses.
