No matter how much dedication and intention your team brings, your school faces issues that can become obstacles to your trajectory.

FORVIS’ assurance, tax, and consulting services can help you make positive and powerful changes. We work from the ground up, performing a full academic portfolio review, collecting and analyzing data, and producing an extensive and custom strategic plan. That plan includes potential opportunities, recommendations for meeting student needs, and a road map for next steps.

“The transition of Campbellsville University to FORVIS was smooth and well organized. We had been with another firm for approximately 18 years and were concerned about the impact of this significant change. The FORVIS team made us feel comfortable about the process and were highly responsive to our many questions. They provide proactive guidance, have deep higher education experience, and share timely insights.”
– Tim Judd, Campbellsville University
