Learn how we Implement
Mindstream helped us address budget deficits and inefficiencies across our university. With the challenges of the pandemic, we are still in a tough place, as many universities are. But if we still had our budget deficits, it would be even worse. I am confident of our ability to move towards a financially sustainable place, as we are in the process of implementing Mindstream's recommendations and solutions across our campus.

We faced the challenging task of finding ways to offer the same quality of service to students, faculty, and staff while trimming cost and redundancy. Joseph Garcia and his Mindstream team were invaluable in this venture and they provided expert guidance and service. Joseph became part of our team at ACU and I am grateful for his dedication and expertise.
