"The biggest opportunity for higher education is for our sector to understand & embrace our vulnerability."

Dr. Steven R. DiSalvo President, Endicott College

Through years of higher education consulting, Credo’s team saw patterns emerge in both the struggles and accomplishments of the schools we served. Over time, nine elements emerged as key drivers for success at those institutions, and became the The Thriving Framework®. From Courageous Leadership to Transformative Environments, The Thriving Framework® provides a powerful lens through which we view institutional health.
