Core leverages its economies of scale and depth of resources to help our institutional partners grow and diversify revenue, improve technological efficiency, and increase operational effectiveness. While Core provides strategic and operational insights for its affiliate partners, our focus is on actively impacting operating results. Core deploys people, services, programs, and solution resources into the day-to-day operations of our partner institutions.

As an operating partner, Core deploys people, services, programs, and solution resources into the day-to-day operations of our partner institutions. We work alongside your team to actively manage and execute 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 can be applied to launching new revenue or market segments that are undertaken 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.


We Provide

Capital Strategy

Core Education PBC works 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. We also work closely with our partners to help unlock the balance sheet for strategic investments.


Core Education PBC meets 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

Core Education PBC curates 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

Alongside our institutional partners, 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 works 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. We also provide treasury services, real estate, and endowment management support to alleviate the pressures our partners are facing in the current environment.

Institutional Partners

“Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream, which fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.”
