Welcome.

Virginia S. Lee and Associates is a consulting firm driven by a vision of colleges and universities as places that support learning and the holistic development of students during their undergraduate years and beyond.

As the public intellectual Leon Wieseltier asserted recently, “There is nothing soft about the quest for a significant life . . .” In that spirit, we seek to assist higher education in reclaiming and making new its mission of supporting young people as they engage pressing questions regarding identity and living a significant life and giving them the knowledge, abilities and attitudes to live it. We believe living a significant life includes finding and preparing for work that contributes to the common good somehow.

We seek to help colleges and universities prepare students for productive, enlightened and joyful engagement in our increasingly complex and troubling world, because we believe the health and vitality of our world depends upon it.

Please take a few moments to explore this site, including some of our recent reflections, and then contact us to discuss how we can assist you in enhancing student learning and development on your campus.
