If you went to Princeton University in the late 1980's or the 1990's, you saw "C. Anthony Broh" on your grade reports and transcript. Perhaps we met as administrators at any of the thirty-one COFHE schools. Or maybe you enrolled in one of my American Government courses at Southern Illinois, SUNY-Geneseo, Hobart and William Smith, Duke, Columbia, Rutgers or Princeton; maybe you took a class with me at Marshall, Maryland, Wisconsin or Yale. Maybe we went to HHS in Huntington, WV together. Perhaps it was an AACRAO or AIR or NEAIR or the College Board or APSA meeting that we saw each other last. My career has taken me to so many places that my name pops up in strange places, which is why it may be familiar to you (or maybe you just Googled me; I used every proper noun on my resume!).
The common theme is, of course, higher education policy - first as a faculty member, then as an administrator, and most recently in consortia of colleges and universities. My years at Princeton and the Consortium for Financing Higher Education (COFHE) began the growth in my research and policy interests that I characterized as the "Straight A's" of higher education: Access, Affordability, Accountability, Accreditation and Assessment. They are the organizational theme and analytic framework for Broh Consulting Services.
Over the years, we have worked with Presidents, Provosts, senior administrators, faculty, admission officers, financial aid directors, institutional researchers, and students.
Broh Consulting Services offers six types of consulting services:
Our most recent activities revolve around the creation, staffing, and administration of the Enrollment Planning Network – a consortium of 22 private research universities – and the Small College Consortium – an evolving group that is currently made up of 24 private small colleges.

Too often the reason students made questionable choices was some "combination of inertia, lack of information, lack of forward planning for college, and lack of encouragement."
