A Word from One of Our Higher Education Clients:

There were several factors that influenced Delaware Valley University to engage with Hanover Research. We had recently established a 2018 institutional goal to grow the School of Graduate and Professional Studies, which would require a major research component. We were seeking a partner who could analyze our challenges in relation to national trends and was willing to get to know our institution from the ground up. We found that Hanover met those needs and plan to leverage our Hanover partnership to gain insight into key questions regarding enrollment and the competitive landscape to drive our decision making process.

Dr. James Moryan; Dean, Division of Graduate and Professional Studies
