Huron Consulting Group Coach Director - Studer Education in Chicago, Illinois

The Opportunity

Huron helps its clients drive growth, enhance performance and sustain leadership in the markets they serve. We collaborate with education organizations to develop strategies and implement solutions that enable the transformative change our clients need to own their future. Together, we empower clients to drive innovation, create sustainable funding streams and deliver better student outcomes.

Today, leaders of higher education institutions and academic medical centers are spending too much time reacting to market forces, rather than focusing on the essential priorities that help students, faculty and staff thrive. The most productive path forward requires an intentional approach and innovative thinking, whereby stakeholders across the entire institution rally around a shared vision and embrace the hard work of effecting change.

You’ll help our clients to achieve organizational effectiveness, improve student outcomes, implement new technologies and align resources and investments to ensure long-term sustainability.

Join our team as the expert you are now and create your future.

Position Summary

Schools and colleges are under immense pressure to improve outcomes, build trust, and reduce the cost of providing services. To succeed long-term, educational organizations must empower leaders, clinicians, employees, affiliates and communities to build cultures that foster innovation to achieve the best outcomes.

Joining the Huron team means you’ll help our clients evolve and adapt to the rapidly changing environment and optimize existing operations, improve outcomes, create a more consumer-centric educational experience, and drive employee engagement across the enterprise.

Join our team as the expert you are now and create your future.
