The Presidents' Network: Education Consultants

Contact PresNet

The Presidents' Network, Inc. (PresNet) is the incorporated successor to an organization of small colleges that was founded in 1958 and has operated continually since that time. The organization took on its present form in 1993 when PresNet, Inc. established corporate headquarters in South Carolina. The original purpose remains:

To support Higher Education in North America and to help Colleges and Universities work together to accomplish goals that they could not accomplish individually.

The organization exists to provide answers to the question, "What can we do together that is too expensive or too difficult to do alone?".

PresNet remains primarily a membership organization offering services to a consortium of more than 90 American Universities as well as 25 Canadian Universities and other Universities in Europe and Asia. PresNet Consulting Services are available to both Member Universities and Non-Member Universities as well as other educational organizations and companies. PresNet has provided consulting services in admissions, sales, marketing, web design, internet recruiting, fundraising, business procedures, administration, curriculum design, facilities design and management, legal services, mediation, health insurance, benefits packages, accreditation, staffing, and more.

Personnel available for consulting come both from the central office of PresNet and from the colleges and universities of the organization. The central administrative staff includes personnel with more than 40 years of experience in higher education and the expertise available on the various campuses is almost infinite.
