Teresa Farnum & Associates

Howard Payne University

“Working with Teresa and her team has been a great experience.  They have helped us target several key areas that will positively impact the student experience at Howard Payne University. Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of our work with them has been their ability to involve the entire campus community and motivate us toward a renewed emphasis on a quality student experience. We increased retention by 12 percent the first year!”

Dr. Brad Johnson
Vice President for Enrollment & Student Services
