When deciding whether or not to partner with Hanover, we were impressed with their high levels of professionalism and personal attention during our initial process of discernment. They won us over with their consistent attentiveness to us! We believe that Hanover will be able to help us make wise decisions about our strategic direction by providing us data that we do not have immediate access to. We are convinced that we must move ahead into high quality online degree programs at our school. We are not willing to compromise on our ethos and values and student-centered culture. We found that Hanover really understands our commitments and have both the desire and the skills to help us.
