Merrimack College

“Teresa Farnum and Associates assisted Merrimack College at a critical time in its assessment of retention efforts. She provided clarity, relevance and confidence that allowed involved departments on campus to move forward on findings she highlighted – both pro and con. I have used her analysis in presentations to the campus and to the Board of Trustees in order to bring us all together on this very important task. She is quick to analyze the situation and amazing in her summary of action items. I recommend Teresa highly because of her knowledge on the issues and her ability to quickly assess the immediate needs of any college she serves.”
