Gary Guadagnolo is a consultant in EAB’s research division. He specializes in operational and strategic issues facing higher education leaders and has helped institutions develop process improvement capabilities to find administrative efficiencies and stand up structures for ongoing conversations about academic program performance. Other research studies led by Gary have focused on everything from mitigating the risks associated with academic medical centers to managing the total cost of ownership of a campus’s physical plant.
Gary leverages his many years of experience as an academic researcher and instructor to help “translate” ideas between academic and administrative units on campus. Outside of the office, and true to his Texas roots, Gary (along with his hound dog) is always on the hunt for good hiking trails and BBQ.
Gary graduated summa cum laude from Baylor University with a B.A. in History. He earned a M.A. and PhD in History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His dissertation examined the integration of Muslim minorities into Russian culture in the Soviet Union of the 1920s and 1930s. Gary speaks Russian and Tatar.
