A history of real experience ...
For nearly two decades, Biddison Hier, Ltd. has been providing resource planning and management services nationwide to public and private institutions of higher education.
As a result of our years of experience working with mission-driven organizations, our consulting approach is based on three premises: (1) sensitivity and skill in working with consensus-based decisionmaking organizations, (2) adapting the "best practices" of the private sector and institutional leaders to the mission-sensitive needs of higher education, and (3) rigorous, objective data collection and analysis to assist institutions in determining alternative solutions, making informed choices, and crafting creative solutions to the many challenges facing higher education. Our clients include some of the most distinguished and progressive institutions in the country, including the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard University, Stanford University, Dartmouth College, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Virginia, Duke University, and George Mason University.
