Hamilton College

Founded in 1793, Hamilton College is a national leader in teaching students to write effectively, learn from each other and think for themselves.

Although it’s one of the most selective colleges in the United States, Hamilton remains a place of opportunity where deserving students, regardless of their financial background, can receive a rigorous liberal arts education.  

Mohonk Preserve

When Mohonk Preserve, New York’s largest nonprofit nature preserve, decided to undertake accreditation, they retained Beth Hershenhart of Innovative Resources Group to guide them through every stage of the process. Applying for accreditation is not an easy task. It requires land trusts to submit extensive documentation and undergo a rigorous review of their standards and practices.

Rutgers University

On two separate campuses in the city of Newark—the Rutgers-Newark Campus and the Rutgers Health Sciences Campus at Newark—Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey, distinguishes itself as one of the nation’s most esteemed public research universities.

Utica College

For 66 years, Utica College has earned its reputation as one of the top-ranking comprehensive colleges in the north.

As this reputation solidifies, there are still many challenges confronting the college—and all colleges—in coming decades. That includes rising numbers of students seeking financial aid, increased globalization, competition from online education, and needed investments in the latest technology.
