American Jewish University announced on May 26 that it has engaged Huron Consulting Group in its exploratory process for a strategic partner at its Sunny & Isadore Familian Campus in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles. Through an intentional process developed in collaboration with Huron, AJU will consider a wide range of potential partners and models in which currently underutilized segments of the campus will be shared with a strategic partner that aligns with AJU in mission and values.
Widely recognized for its deep expertise in higher education, Huron works with institutions to proactively think about strategic alliances and helps leaders assess strategic options, develop action plans and execute mergers, acquisitions and other alliances.
A wide range of institutions will be considered as part of the process, including universities, schools and nonprofit organizations. The parcel of land – located at 15600 Mulholland Drive – is in the heart of Los Angeles near other higher education institutions, including the University of California, Los Angeles. The review will not include the Brandeis-Bardin Campus in Simi Valley, home of the renowned Brandeis Collegiate Institute and the much-loved Camp Alonim.
“Since its founding, American Jewish University has continuously evolved to meet the needs of the Jewish community. In that tradition, we have made a range of strategic decisions this year to effectively position our institution for the future,” AJU President Dr. Jeffrey Herbst said. “As we continue our work to advance Jewish wisdom and elevate Jewish living, we are exploring whether we could better allocate resources to serve our mission and growing digital capabilities. We are grateful to Huron for lending their expertise in our search for a strategic partner that aligns with our educational mission and will enhance the vibrancy of AJU’s Familian Campus.”
