About Our Digital Resources

MGDA has developed and made available a host of digital resources for the Higher Education Community. Below we have explained what they are, what they provide and posted direct links. Our resources are constantly being updated, improved, edited, and modified as we learn. Our learning comes from our own research and analysis, our clients and engagements with them, our associates and their experience and from comments and interactions with the broader education community via our digital platform.

Main Website

This is our main website. It is developed in word press and has a number of features you should be aware of themes we post


Our website is served by two menus. The top menu, located above the title banner offers access to content pages leading to Home / Projects / Services / About options. Home returns you to the front page. Projects takes you to a page with illustrative MGDA client projects. Services contains a treasure trove of content detailing methods and models, providing access to diagrams, and featuring analysis.., and more. About provides information about our organization, our clients, publications and a site map to our main website.

The second menu appears below the title banner providing access to themes we post in our blog.  Academic Strategies covers all things Academic in nature . Strategic Planning cover. SEM covers Strategic Enrollment Management and includes. Learning covers cognitive science,..


Our blog is where we track every day occurrences across higher education, public policy, the economy, the judicial systems, marketing, technology…  Our Blog (officially referred to as MGDA’s Higher Education Blog) is what appears on our main page along with the menu bar (Displaying Home / Projects / Services / About options in white letters over black background) Blogs are a series of sequential posts (meaning they are organized around the date they are posted) that appear in a branded thematic website organized around a specific interest area.


Pages are organized by topics rather than by the date they are posted. Pages are one of the places where the deep rich content is located within our web sphere. The are the place where detailed information is stored and organized. The page you are now reading is just that a page within our website. It is accessed via the menu bar.


Tags are keywords that we identify within a post or a page that clarifies the content of the material. Tags provide a useful way to group related posts together and to quickly tell readers what a post is about. Tags also make it easier for people to find your content. Tags are similar to, but more specific than, categories.


Categories are classifications we organize our material under. We assign each entry a category so when you wish to see the entries for a specific subject are you do not need to hunt around. Our categories cluster around our service focal areas.

Social Media

Social media include communication systems like LinkedIn, Facebook, Google +, and Twitter… They permit us the opportunity to let you know what is going on within our organization and web sphere (digital resources) and in the broader sphere of global education in real time..
