Higher Education

Our team has extensive expertise in college and university philanthropy and advancement. We are committed to providing comprehensive services in major gifts, annual fund, alumni affairs and community relations.

We understand the challenges you face.

The traditional paradigm of American higher education is rapidly changing. Today’s campus leaders increasingly face mounting issues of adaptability and sustainability as they attempt to adjust their campuses to new and emerging realities. Adapting to those new realities sometimes require assistance from highly experienced and objective external professionals who understand those challenges and have demonstrated success in meeting them.

That’s where we can help you.

Ashley | Rountree and Associates is committed to helping you preserve your institution’s vital mission and its impact upon the world in an ever-changing academic landscape. We recognize that enhanced financial resources, good governance, inspired strategic direction, and administrative best practices each contribute to organizational sustainability at a time where existential threats are real. Sometimes this requires deep organizational change. Such change is often best facilitated through objective, outside counsel.

What we bring to the table.

Every college and university is unique. Because true organizational change must account for the features that make your institution different from all the others, we do not employ “cookie-cutter” or template solutions in addressing your challenges. We tailor our services to your particular needs and goals after first obtaining a full understanding of what makes your college different. These challenges now facing our nation’s colleges and universities are most acute in the small, independent college sector. Our services are predominantly focused on behalf of this important group of institutions because of their singular role in American higher education, and the need to reinforce their vital mission to society at large. The professionals at Ashley | Rountree and Associates enjoy extensive successful experience working in this sector and share your commitment to the independent college sector’s sustainability. And because of our creative organizational structure and low operational overhead, we offer attractive affordability to our clients.
