The Center for Higher Education Transformation

Colleges and universities are navigating a wave of change, accelerated by a period of dramatic disruption. Today’s educational landscape, driven by new learning technologies, new offerings, new credentials — and new providers — has given students more control over their futures and created more competition in an increasingly crowded higher education sector.

We were facing the reality that we needed to diversify our path to successful student outcomes and make our graduates more workforce-ready. The Tyton Partners team not only helped us reinforce this need with our board, but also worked with me and my team to develop a strategy and plan for a new micro/stackable credential offering. Because we moved fast on this strategy, we are experiencing growth in tuition revenue and are now able to access previously underserved student populations.
