We have established a market-leading platform of transformative business model solutions

Core partners with institutions to create comprehensive pathways to prosperity. We help presidents and boards address prosperity through a lens of abundance rather than scarcity or deficiency. We engage collaboratively with presidents, board leadership, and campus executives to identify a unique pathway to success and then begin work alongside them to execute on the required initiatives.

Pathways to success may include multiple major initiatives: revenue growth and diversification, technology efficiency, operating effectiveness, and new capital strategies. Core has an operating team on staff for every functional area of an institution, and we use these resources across departments to innovate, solve problems, and deliver results.

As an operating partner, Core deploys our people and solution resources into the day-to-day operations of our partner institutions. We become part of your team and actively manage and execute with you on operational objectives.

With Core as an operating partner, we can accomplish more together compared to a "do-it-yourself" implementation model. Far too many institutions have developed strategic plans without the depth of resources to successfully implement their objectives. The same paradigm applies to launching new initiatives with an inadequate financial reinvestment model or implementation shortfalls. Partnering with Core does not change who you are, but what you can accomplish as an institution.

We are a mission-driven company that is dedicated to transforming nonprofit colleges and universities.  As a public benefit corporation, we are bound to serving this mission for the public good. 

Boards are at their best when they are strategically focused on their institution’s future, aiming for goals that are big enough to achieve long-term prosperity. Rather than engaging at a tactical or managerial level, successful boards empower campus leaders to execute on a mandate for business model transformation.

Getting to Know Core Education

CORE EDUCATION SERVICES

We Provide

Capital Strategy

Core was founded on the premise that we can accomplish more working together than our partners can by themselves. We provide treasury services, real estate, and endowment management support to alleviate the pressures our partners are facing in the current environment. We also work closely with our partners to help unlock the balance sheet for strategic investments.



Technology

We meet our partners where they are to stabilize and then modernize the digital backbone of campus, revenue, and enterprise technology. Our deep pool of resources allows us to actively manage IT departments through partial or full managed services.







Academic Services

We curate a library of market-ready, online workforce development certificates and degree courses that are private-labeled for deployment by our partners. We provide faculty-sharing, prior learning assessments, input on course development and design, and forward-looking industry-aligned programmatic research.





Revenue Growth and Diversification

We work with our partners to create a viable business model for the future that outlines key operating ratios and recommended reserves. We align this work with strategic growth building blocks, margin growth, operational execution timelines, and implementation services that we perform with you as your partner. Core assists in actively managing campus, online, and workforce enrollment programs. Core runs an active contact center and robust CRM to nurture leads and drive on-campus, online, and workforce development yield for our partners.

Operating Effectiveness

Core works with our institutional partners to eliminate internal barriers to success. These may include out-of-market operating policies, rhythms, and workflows. The Core teams work side-by-side with our institutional partners to execute on ambitious goals.










Venture Philanthrophy

Core enhances existing institutional development work with our partners by creating business cases to raise funds for our partners' most strategic initiatives. We provide contact and relationship-building strategies for cultivating support from both individual and institutional donors.
