Senior Consultant for Student Success

Sean McGreevey (he/him/his) spent his 22-year career on campus working in just about every area of student affairs you can think of. No matter his role—from residence life to student health services; from campus recreation to diversity, equity, and inclusion—and no matter his title—from assistant director to director to dean, Sean has devoted his professional life to facilitating student success.  

A Solutions-Oriented Approach to Campus Change 

Sean’s student affairs experiences were the perfect preparation for his work a Credo Senior Consultant. His deep expertise helps our Moving the Needle partners facilitate culture change, foster collaboration, overcome resource challenges, and reach their retention goals. Chief among Sean’s many talents is an ability to help clients identify the near-term strategies that will make the biggest impact on student success.  

In the vast landscape of the student experience in higher education, I most enjoy discovering opportunities to make an impact.

Adventure Awaits

Coworkers and clients describe Sean as driven and passionate—qualities he brings both to his work and his favorite hobby, whitewater kayaking. Sean graduated from the National Outdoor Leadership School and is certified as a Level IV Whitewater Kayak Instructor. When he’s not riding the rapids, he enjoys spending time with his partner Caroline and their dogs, Gertrude and Mildred.
