“Clayton is well respected among ISACS schools for his keen insight and ability to see right to the core of schools, their mission, and whether they are achieving that mission fully. This is evidenced by the number of established schools in ISACS who ask for Clayton specifically when looking for a chair of an accreditation team. Clayton’s other work has given him the opportunity to establish relationships throughout the country, and his affable personality puts people at ease and allows him to articulate difficult information in a very constructive way. Technically Clayton and his school were competitors of mine, but I have always found him to be a mentor and friend.”
