"I expected a quality study from Dr. Patberg from ASC, because of his knowledge of the issues and the kinds of questions he was asking during the process of evaluating our athletic affiliation options.  But when I received the final report I was overwhelmed at both the depth, breadth, and actionable insights he gathered from the analysis. His work was exactly what a university president and board needed to tackle the complex decisions demanded of athletics.  ASC and Patberg consulting with us was the single best investment I ever could have made in the future of our athletic program."

President, Belhaven University

lifepacificAthletics Staffing and Consultants (ASC) has continued to build working relationships with NAIA institutions. Most recently, ASC staff members Kurt Patberg, Tim Selgo, and Jim Abbott have combined to assist Dordt College, McPherson College and Life Pacific College with departmental reviews with an emphasis on enrollment management.   

ASC specializes in working with enrollment-driven, private colleges to help them maximize the use of their athletic programs as enrollment and retention tools. In addition, ASC provides in its analysis the breakdown on the current status of the contribution each sport is making toward the net tuition revenue of the institution as well as reviewing what additional sports could be added by the institution to attract students. Retention rates and tracking and monitoring retention is also a major piece of these reviews.

ASC provides professional consulting in many areas of collegiate athletics including leadership training, departmental reviews, job searches, Title IX assessments, enrollment management assessments, fundraising and revenue generation, and strategic planning.
