Consulting Services for Academic Affairs

I am pleased to announce that a consultant has been retained to help chart the course for the future of Academic Affairs, with an eye toward building on the university’s academic strengths. Dr. Mary Pat Seurkamp will conduct interviews with members of the administration, faculty, staff and students beginning Friday, November 3 and concluding in December. 

Dr. Seurkamp offers a wealth of experience in higher education. She is President Emerita at Notre Dame of Maryland University and a founding partner in MPK&D Higher Education Strategy and Leadership Consulting. She also has ongoing consulting relationships with Yaffe & Company and Asset Strategy Consultants and is a Senior Advisor and Director for the New President’s Program for the Council of Independent Colleges. Additionally she previously held the position of Vice President for Institutional Planning and Research at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York. 

My office will coordinate meeting times for Dr. Seurkamp, and I ask for your cooperation if you are contacted to allocate time to meet and provide input. 

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Seurkamp to BSU, and let me know if you have any questions. 

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
