A Word from One of Our Higher Education Clients:

As a premiere research institution, NC State is committed to employing a data-driven decision-making process, which informs how we determine marketing and communications strategy. That commitment places a premium on acquisition of high-quality, non-biased research to apply to a broad spectrum of communications questions and challenges, and we investigated a number of different possible ways to meet that need. In the end, we determined that for our current circumstances, engaging an independent, private sector research firm was the most cost-effective method to obtain the data that we need. After comparing competing vendor capabilities and costs, we chose Hanover Research as our partner.
