Hope Umansky, PhD

Founder of Innovations Advocacy

Having been an out of the box thinker my entire life, I am a 26-year career educator and want to share my passion for transformative educational experiences by expanding my reach into other institutions and research organizations to assist with initiatives across all institutional levels and stakeholder lines.

After leaving many years in high ranking C-suite higher education administration and teaching, it was time to expand my reach and help other schools, researchers, and students.

Awarded for outstanding teaching and administrative methods in the development of integrative curriculum models based in rigor and cutting-edge learning theory. Recognized strategic consulting-based efficiencies in student services, academic affairs, strategic communications & partnerships through a holistic view of the institution and student.

I have known Hope Umansky for a decade and I have always found her to be of great integrity, wisdom and a very highly skilled Academic and CEO.
