“Xavier benefited from the insightful analysis of MPK&D reviewers, who understood higher education very well and could take a fresh look at what we do and how we do. We were fortunate to receive their perspectives as I assumed the presidency of this remarkable university. Dr. Dan Carey continued as a valuable resource providing ongoing counsel both to the president and to the board of trustees. MPK&D is much appreciated.”
