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.

A Combination of Capital and Counsel

Tyton Partners has an extensive track record of helping institutions identify effective strategies to evolve and then successfully deploy and implement those strategies through:


Institutional strength assessment including, business model sustainability planning, institutional strength assessment including program portfolio analysis, online strategy development, and identification and evaluation of new product and market opportunities, including alternative credentials.


Student success audits and online infrastructure optimization, program and labor market alignment, and pricing and other competitive analysis.


Business case development for affiliations, partner identification and evaluation, and merger and acquisition representation, including process management and negotiation of terms.


Access to a network of specialist equity firms, capital pools, foundations, investor syndicates, bond underwriters, and lenders focused on higher education across a spectrum of structures and capital options.

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.
