Dr. Sean Creighton – Delivering a Purposeful Education Through Institutional Collaboration

President, The New American Colleges & Universities (NACU)

"We provide counsel to one another. We address issues that are right in front of us. We challenge one another to think about the future. Our campuses are allies to one another."

“How do we help [higher education institutions] thrive in perpetuity?” Dr. Sean Creighton asks in this episode of Rebuilding the American Dream. A key part of that answer, he believes, is in the support of and collaboration between individual institutions. At The New American Colleges & Universities, they are building just that: “A trusted environment that comes with bringing together like-minded, like-missioned institutions who are not direct competitors.”

Dr. Sean Creighton has been President of The New American Colleges & Universities since 2019.
