As the former Dean of the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University, I cannot help but think of the work produced by Dr. Alicia Barbara Harvey-Smith, when I think back about my most challenging task of leading the faculty toward a self-study report required for submission prior to re-affirmation of accreditation. Dr. Harvey-Smith's expertise in student professional development proved to be invaluable. Her assessment of our admissions procedures, course offerings, advisement process, student termination criteria, method of student performance, and adherence to student rights was a contributing factor to the School's re-accreditation until 2014.

I was so impressed with Dr. Harvey-Smith's knowledge-base and her compassion for learning and engaging institutional leaders that I invited her to St. Petersburg College. She engaged faculty, counselors/advisors, college administrators and staff regarding "Aligning Practice with Learning-Centered Principles", through this work, she helped us ameliorate our advising model as we begin to take advising to the next level.
...
I highly recommend the consulting and presentation services of Dr. Alicia Harvey-Smith. As co-chair of West Virginia Community College Association 2005 Annual Conference, I invited Dr. Harvey-Smith to serve as keynote and to facilitate a series of workshops. She encouraged participants to direct renewed attention to the heart of the institution - its people and to establish cultures that are open and responsive to change and learning - to promote student success. She further engaged us to create cultures of CARE by embracing compassion, appreciation, respect and empowerment for all learners. Her nine-stage model for authentic change and sustainability was amazing. She motivated my faculty and staff to come together in new ways to improve learning. As a result, her words and models became the starting point for revamping college retention committees, college retention plans, and classroom and office initiatives.
...
Dr. Harvey-Smith was invited to serve as a presenter and consultant for the Advanced Leadership Placement Team. The presentation was very well received by my ALP team members. The consensus of the group was that "Humor in the Workplace" is a topic that is often over looked by leadership training professionals, despite its importance. We felt that the mixture of levity and real life personal/professional benefits was very well done and made people take another look at this often forgotten management approach. I was also very impressed by Dr. Harvey-Smith's ability to research and create a training session from scratch in a relatively short amount of time, that really pulled people in and had folks talking. So thank you, Dr. Harvey-Smith for a job well done and you really saved me on this one.

Dr. Harvey-Smith visited our campus as a consultant and made a presentation to the ESS staff focused on exploring learning outcomes and assessment practices.
