You can name just about any role in higher education, and there’s a good chance Travis Feezell has probably held it at some point. Across his 30+ years on campus, he’s been a professor, coach, chair, special assistant, athletics director, provost, and even president. 

Travis brings all he’s learned from that broad experience—plus a collaborative and entrepreneurial spirit—to his work with Credo clients.  

Elevating Excellence in Higher Education Leadership   

In addition to his diverse roles on campus, Travis has become sought-after leadership development coach for higher ed executives, helping them build efficient organizational structures, cultivate talent, and lead high-performing teams. He uses a data-driven approach to diagnose and address challenges colleges and universities face while building trust and rapport with top leaders and cross-campus stakeholders alike.  

I love higher education and I believe so deeply in its transformative power.

Athletics, competition & Community

A former Rhodes Scholar national finalist, Feezell often speaks and writes on issues of sport and higher education in America. He brings his experience as a baseball player and coach to every day experiences, and especially enjoys focusing on the intersections of strategy and athletics.

Higher education can be slow-moving and entrenched, but thriving institutions will recognize new and innovative ways to solve problems.

 Driven by Creativity 

Travis relishes the creativity required to tackle unique institutional problems—and he carries the creativity into all his off hours, too. For example, he published his first novel, Home on the Line, in September 2023.
