DRG Off-Site Consultations

As the name implies, an off-site consultation takes place primarily through phone conversations, web-based video conferencing (such as Skype) and document exchange.  The professional consultation is designed to support a specific project or activity within a department, program, or division.  The length of the consultation is negotiated by the consultant and the hiring institution and depends on the nature of the project or activity.

Examples of projects or activities include: development of an assessment plan; curriculum revision; or the development of a new major, graduate program, or certificate.  DRG off-site consultations cannot include mediating departmental or institutional conflicts, or acting as an advisor on personnel decisions. 

For additional assistance, contact: Margaret Weigers Vitullo, PhD, Director, ASA Academic and Professional Affairs.

Fees and Expenses

Payment for services is on an hourly basis, negotiated between the consultant and the institution, with a recommended rate of at least $75 an hour.
