what we do & Why We Do It

We provide transformative strategy to the education and nonprofit sector. Our capabilities include strategic planning, marketing, research, positioning, identity, visioning, and governance. Three ISA distinct areas of expertise - (isa) education, (isa) nonprofit, and (isa) institute - have served over 350 clients since 2003.

We believe education and the social sector remain the most powerful weapons we can use to change the world, solve social problems, and build sustainable communities. In fact, we launched the #justcause campaign in 2011 to help empower organizations using education to solve systemic poverty.
