Academic Institutions



Developing and maintaining open and direct communication with policy makers is vital for the growth and survival of every academic institution. Recent cuts to education funding, merit pay for teachers, and the potential for year-round education are hot topics in the media and communities where institutions operate. Leaders of academic institutions need a sound strategy and plan of action for building community support for their initiatives and vision.


The Art Hamilton Group is closely connected to the people who influence public education in Arizona. Based on the old saying that it is not what you know but who you know that counts, The Art Hamilton Group can introduce academic institution leaders to the right people through various means. These may include arranging meetings with editorial boards, creating public awareness campaigns with community leaders and the public, or building alliances with others who are similarly situated.
