About Linda

I am an internationally recognized consultant, speaker, writer, and workshop facilitator on a broad variety of higher education assessment topics. I work with colleges and universities throughout the United States and abroad.

With over 40 years of experience in higher education administration, I understand how colleges work. Prior positions include serving as a Vice President at the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, Director of the American Association for Higher Education's Assessment Forum, Associate Vice President for Assessment & Institutional Research at Towson University, Assistant to the President for Planning at Millersville University, and Director of Institutional Research at the State University of New York College at Oswego. I have hands-on experience in assessment, institutional effectiveness, and strategic planning.


I have taught graduate courses in assessment and educational research methods and undergraduate courses in writing, statistics, and developmental mathematics.


I hold a B.A. in Quantitative Studies from Johns Hopkins University and an M.A. in Educational Measurement and Statistics from the University of Iowa.
