Recognizing that each institution's situation is unique, HER Consulting LLC offers varied and customized consulting options. The arrangement that will appeal most to each client is typically determined by the scope of work that client needs as a whole. This page provides an overview of the services we provide.

The Red-Green Assessment is a great tool for institutions.
Sharyl creates this specifically for your institution. She researches the state authorization regulations and pictorially demonstrates which activities your institution can do without authorization and which activities require your institution to obtain authorization for each state and the District of Columbia. This Assessment can then be the basis for strategic planning, talking points for admissions staff, and deciding where to seek authorization. It also informs disclosures that need to be posted on the website and in the academic catalog.
