One of our core industry areas is education, where we serve public and private higher education institutions, community colleges, charter schools and K-12 school districts.

Our passion for education goes beyond our client assignments: our partners have served on the board of trustees, on advisory committees, and other volunteer roles for higher education institutions, and one partner has donated a significant amount of African art to their alma mater.

Further, the firm recruits heavily from HBCU’s in our effort to find the best and the brightest, and to change the dynamic in our own industry in providing opportunities for black accountants.

Our education practice is diverse, not only in the types of institutions served, but also in the value brought to each engagement.
