Fuller HES grows out of Founder Tim Fuller’s deep love for and experience with Christian colleges and universities.


Fuller has personally consulted with more than 100 Christian college campuses to help them with enrollment, strategic planning, and making the case for why they are worth choosing.

As the president of a Christian college, where do you turn when you need advice or a listening ear?

Fuller HES can be that empathetic ear through a deep understanding of the unique nature of a Christ-centered college.


Every college needs a strategic plan.  Accreditors, donors, and board members require not only the presence of a strategic plan, but even more want to measure the difference it is making in the life and progress of your campus.  

Enrollment Data Analysis

Do you need help with enrollment?  These are challenging days for higher education, and Christian higher education is not exempt from the challenges of demographics, competition, concerns about debt and affordability, rising discount rates, and now the impact of the global pandemic.

Did You Know?

The smaller the enrollment, the higher the cost to recruit.  The smallest institutions in the study (less than 450 total traditional undergraduates) spend an average of $4,724 to recruit a student while the largest institutions (more than 1,800 total traditional undergraduates) only spend $2,831.

What our Clients Say

{Tim is a person who is always there for you, both personally and professionally. He is a consummate professional with years of experience, including 27 years at Houghton College, ending his tenure there as Vice President for Enrollment Management, and 13 years with Credo as an owner and senior vice president. Tim brings a curious, creative, and generous spirit to his work, and continues to be a wonderful partner to the CCCU and countless individual Christian colleges and universities who rely on his savvy enrollment expertise.
Shirley V. Hoogstra
President, Council for Christian Colleges & Universities 
{Having known Tim now for several decades and having been helped many times over by his counsel and insight, I simply borrow the words of Italian scholar Niccolo Segundino when describing Thomas More. Mr. More was Lord Chancellor under King Henry VIII.  “I often relax in his delightful company as one might lodge in some beautiful place.  I never see him without his sending me away better informed and more attached to him.  You could not imagine, I assure you, a more agreeable, charming, and amusing man.  His wonderful elegance as a writer, his choice of words and well-rounded sentences are universally admired but no more so than his keen mind, set off by fairness, humor, wit and courtesy.” When you put these words in the context of providing strategic guidance to our colleges, I firmly believe Tim is the best in the field.
Peter Teague, EdD
President Emeritus, Lancaster Bible College/Capital Seminary
{Oklahoma Wesleyan University (OKWU) has benefitted tremendously by having Tim Fuller work with us on strategic advising centered in our admissions journey as well as on the onboarding processes of our students. What I love about Tim is that he has the personal gifts and graces that consistently demonstrate outstanding interpersonal skills with whomever he is training. He knows what he’s doing because he’s actually practiced what he preaches. Most of all, he deals hope for better ways of helping a university thrive well into the future. The return on investment that OKWU received from Tim is worth every precious penny we spent! It is already paying off significant dividends. I am convinced that you and your university will benefit greatly from working with Tim Fuller.  
Jim Dunn, D Min
President, Oklahoma Wesleyan University
{I’ve had the privilege of knowing Tim for almost forty years and have relied on his wisdom and expertise countless times.  I doubt there is anyone who knows Christian higher education better than Tim, and he brings that vast reservoir of experience to every engagement.  He is focused on mission, informed by data, and driven to seek excellence – yet at the same time is highly relational, genuinely humble and relentlessly funny.  Tim will help you ask better questions, find better answers, be a better leader, and build a better college.”     
Jack Connell, EdD
President, Eastern Nazarene College
{Tim has guided our senior leadership team through several strategic projects, including two institutional strategic plans. He brings a deep understanding of the higher education landscape and a passion for Christian higher education that produce outstanding results. What I really appreciate about Tim is that he invests himself in our people, not just our projects.
