About The Compass

The Compass supports communities of professional practice and lifelong learning. Grounded in extensive experience with educational and non-profit organizations, The Compass advances online media for lifelong learning.

The Compass LLC was founded as Compass Media by Jay Collier to provide professional communication services to regional organizations. The Compass has since developed and published news, updates, and learning resources for over a dozen non-profits and educational organizations.

In 2010, The Compass added focus on the curation of online resources for learning communities within educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and NGOs.

Collier speaks at regional and national conferences for online media professionals in higher education and advises non-profits on strategic, integrated communications for lifelong learning.

The Compass LLC was created in the model of a low-profit limited liability corporation, intended to “bridge the gap between non-profit and for-profit investing by providing a structure that facilitates investments in socially beneficial, for-profit ventures.”
