"The creation of degree completion programs at Tiffin University fundamentally changed the way we serve adult students. Without the assistance of Education Strategy, it would have been impossible for us to develop this type of programming for our students. Degree completion programs are an integral part of our strategic enrollment plan as we intend to extend our outreach to adults through this innovative approach to education."
Paul Marion, Ph.D., President, Tiffin University
"North Park University has experienced healthy program growth in the Organizational Management (OM) Degree Completion Program for nearly a decade. The typical students attracted to this program are from the non-profit sector, corporate managers and police officers, which exemplifies our efforts in the area of workforce development. This program has been an excellent fit with university's mission."

"Education Strategy set up an unequal relationship with Talladega College. That is why we signed the agreement with them. They provide everything upfront and are willing to wait until we are successful to get anything back. The unequal relationship is in our favor."
Dr. Billy C. Hawkins, President, Talladega College
Thoughts from President Emeritus George Kidd (Tiffin University)
"The reason for purchasing a program was to speed the learning curve and get the program moving quickly. None of the TU faculty had any experience in writing accelerated courses, so we would have run the risk of taking a long time and then maybe not doing it very well."
"Of course there were a number of faculty members who did not like the idea and were afraid of it. If an institution waits for its faculty to do something, it will never get it done. We made the decision to go in this direction and then had the faculty determine the details. Most presidents don't care about the details and faculty love the details."
Thoughts from Newberry College faculty member Charli Wessinger-Weatherford, MS.Ed.
Associate Director of Institutional Research
"ES has done a great job at supporting curriculum and offering guidance for any changes that I needed to make along the way. Training from the onset has been wonderful as ES has always been patient with me in all my questions and needs! The VDC is a great resource for the OMP curriculum with updates with book changes, and when I need inspiration to work on the curriculum."
"Education Strategy provides everything upfront until we are successful - this relationship is in our favor."
