Working with John Dysart was the most professionally satisfying, productive and stimulating experience of my enrollment career. His counsel and guidance caused me to grow and succeed in ways I’d not thought possible. This year marks 20 years we’ve known each other.
I always enjoyed working with John. He is straight forward and tells it like it is, but that is a style I appreciate. There are no hidden agendas, just direct, instructive communication as well as give and take.
John worked with me at Saint Xavier University for 10 years. We doubled the enrollment during that time, increased the average EFC, GPA and ACT score. We built an athletic center, chapel, 3 residence halls, plus enlarged the dining hall because of enrollment growth.
At Roosevelt University, successful implementation of his strategies increased new student enrollment by 70% in a single cycle. If you do what he says- your institution will set enrollment records.
I recommend hiring him to review your current admission and financial aid strategies and offer specific recommendations for improvement. He’s worth every penny if you do what he recommends. Then someday you’ll be writing a similar recommendation for him.
