A Word from One of Our Higher Education Clients:

Logan University’s strategic plan calls for regular and systematic growth over the next few years as we move from a single purpose institute to a chiropractic and health science university. As a small institution, we try to ensure our operations are staffed in accordance with the needs outlined by our enrollment. To stay strong and mighty, it is important that we maximize our resources wherever possible and Hanover is a great opportunity to do that. We plan to work with Hanover to review the market for potential new programs and facility growth. By engaging in three simultaneous research queues with Hanover, we hope to speed up and strengthen the process of improvement at Logan University, ensuring successful complementary degree launches.

For others considering working with an external partner, I suggest they consider the cost of a new team helping current employees write, evaluate and review data for potential new programs and sites. Compare that cost to the cost of contracting with Hanover. I would also recommend they look at the case studies, which show how different school have saved money through program evaluations.
