The Fitzwilliam Associates
Leave college admission in a better place than we found it
Today, the need for strong leadership in the college admission and secondary school college counseling space has never been greater.
As Fitzwilliam Associates, we strive to inspire those in the profession to leave college admission in a better place than we found it. We question assumptions by seeking data driven decisions. We develop leaders. Strong leadership in any profession doesn’t happen by accident. Leaders are grown through an intentional process. It starts by taking those that work alongside of us, and encouraging, supporting, equipping and developing them until they master what they do and can eventually take our place. In fact, the history of the Fitzwilliam Associates has actually been based on just that model of mentorship. It’s a legacy founded on the premise of leadership and mentorship.
It is in that spirit we offer the Fitzwilliam Conference and the Fitzwilliam Experience.
The Fitzwilliam Conference, held each year in May since 1970 is a participatory retreat for seasoned college admission professionals from both sides of the desk. The conference offers the time, space and environment of trust for the talented and seasoned to reflect on the business of kids and the college admission process. The Fitzwilliam Experience tackles understanding the challenges and rewards of our profession, the importance of networking with colleagues, learning how to lead from within and the critical nature of continued personal and professional growth and development.
