In their own words:

"Aon Hewitt understands higher education’s unique pressures and constraints. During the past nine years, we

have confirmed and expanded our 40 year commitment to serving universities, colleges and university

systems by establishing a multidisciplinary, cross functional university and college consulting practice, and by

founding the University Pathfinder, University Roundtable, and Pathfinders Middle East consortiums, as

vehicles for studying common issues and concerns facing leading academic institutions and university

systems. Through these efforts, we provide education, training, survey, and research services to university

clients and consortium members, often at no cost to participating institutions. We offer unparalleled

resources to institutions. Our Higher Education Consulting Practice: Our consulting practice serves more than

300 public and private universities and colleges, providing us a wealth of experience with and a deep

understanding of the complex realities of university administration, shared governance, and related decision

making protocols. Through our extensive work on campuses throughout North America (and increasingly

around the world), we have developed deep and broad experience in managing faculty and staff advisory

committees, as well as board relationships and committees. We are very comfortable with—and skilled in

implementing—the sensitive and important consensus building activities that are critical to an effective

valuation or smooth implementation of any HR or benefits change in a university setting. We are also

experienced in problem solving at staff, faculty, and senior administration levels and have significant

experience in both strategic and procedural issues—helping us ensure smooth, efficient decision making and

resolution of concerns as complex projects are implemented."
