Higher education is adapting to a “new normal”
and we are passionate about helping schools navigate these challenges.
We’ve been at this for over 25 years
the story of our company
Our firm was founded in 1989

Today, we continue that legacy
in helping higher education institutions manage risk, navigate change and deliver results for their most strategic initiatives. Collegiate Project Services is headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina, with a geographically diverse team of consultants across the country.
