Higher Education Association Partnerships

Collaborating Towards The Future of Higher Education

Credo partners with higher education associations, consortia, and organizations on strategic levels to provide access to strategic educational services that impact student, institutional, and community success on a macro-level. We empower associations to provide an individualized, interconnected level of learning to their leaders, talent, students, and communities. We offer focused projects, services, and solutions, customized for the unique needs of your association, whether it be by location, denomination, affinity group, or specific opportunities for growth you are facing as a group.

Our mission is to impact 1 million learners, and we are well on the way with the impactful partnerships of state, regional, denominational  and national levels.

Will you join us in impacting a million learners?

"I have worked with Credo over a couple of decades on a number of projects for two different organizations. The staff is professional, and I always know that we will receive excellent service and an implementable outcome."
