Leadership

Our leadership represents more than 70 years of combined experience in higher and secondary education.  Since founding Prescience Associates in 1998, we have successfully completed more than 300 engagements, projects, and research investigations across a national clientele of research and regional universities, liberal arts and professional colleges, and independent schools.

Ron Wendeln

After a successful career as a senior college administrator for academic affairs, advancement, and research, Ron joined a national consulting firm to establish its strategic and brand planning practices.  In 1998, he helped found Prescience Associates to integrate business, brand, and performance planning for academic enterprises.  Ron earned his BA from the University of Notre Dame (summa cum laude) and his Ph.D. as a University Fellow from Boston College.  Active in community affairs, he has chaired boards of Greater Cleveland’s largest social services agency and a preeminent Catholic high school and served on various United Way and Catholic Diocesan planning and distribution committees.  An avid endurance runner, Ron competes in marathons and trail ultramarathons.
