Seton Hall University to Study Academic and Program Trends with Hanover’s Research Solutions

“I had formerly experienced the high quality capabilities of Hanover Research at my prior institution, and was delighted to establish a new partnership at Seton Hall University. In the coming year, Hanover’s research solutions will help our university improve our understanding of program trends and what defines a sustainable portfolio of programs that is focused on the mission of the institution, scholarship distinction, and long-term sustainability. Hanover’s program analysis and other primary research capabilities, like survey development, make them a great fit for our university. Colleges and Schools within the University will be able to access the primary and secondary data resources needed for their innovation. For others considering external support, take the time to ask questions. It always takes several meetings to understand if there is a strong task-research fit, but I am confident that we will expand the areas of academic program research and many others with Hanover’s support.”

— Katia Passerini, Provost & Executive Vice President
