Mind and Hand Associates is a research and consulting firm dedicated to serving the higher education community. Having spent many years in both the business world and university administration, we understand the nuances of higher education and how colleges and universities are, and are not, like businesses. We believe in the value of education and have made helping those on the front lines of higher education our life's work. Our services embed a philosophy of mind and hand (understanding and action), which builds on each organization's unique combination of values, capabilities, history, and aspirations to achieve better performance. Sometimes it entails a radical rethinking, and other times it requires only minor fine-tuning, improved alignment, or better execution. Our work can inform decisions, uncover new opportunities, improve discrete outcomes or become the catalyst for organizational transformation. Our clients include for-profit and not-for-profit universities, public and private institutions, professional schools, associations, testing organizations, publishers, and investment firms.
