About Campus 4.0
Campus 4.0 is the first higher education simulation of its kind. Using advanced AI-based technology, Campus 4.0 puts you in the room at the moment of decision. You can play through scenarios based on the actual experiences of college leaders from a campus like yours. Make decisions that change the trajectory of your virtual school and see how the results change as you replay the simulations. For every decision, you get instant feedback, a red, yellow, or green indicator, allowing you to navigate school politics, make decisions, and see results—enrollment, graduation rates, financial reports, and external ratings—in minutes not months.

Who We Are
Michael and Gina were once “enemies” from different worlds – nonprofit and for-profit higher education – competing for the same students. Sharing a commitment to student success, they found common ground and eventually a partnership. Believing we are in a critical time (technology disruption, COVID-19 pandemic, overnight shift to virtual learning, budget challenges) they teamed up with Lia whose game-changing work on accelerated learning and leadership allowed Campus 4.0 to come to life in a virtual world.
We believe turning the page for colleges and universities in the U.S. means not just focusing on the work we do—which is and always should be driven by the interests, ingenuity, and hard work of individuals—but also on how we do the work—finding richer and more effective ways to use the experiences and stories generated from leaders at all levels.
