Geomarket Opportunity DashboardUncover recruiting opportunities with data-driven strategies

Recruit more students by targeting the right local and regional geographies

Student demographics are rapidly shifting. Do you know where your most promising potential applicants are located? Colleges and universities need the latest data to keep their institutions top-of-mind with the prospects who are most likely to become their next students, wherever they reside.

Hanover’s research helps institutions make smart geography-based recruitment and marketing decisions. Our teams build custom, interactive dashboards based on your applicant, enrollment, and marketing data, national demographic trends, and other key variables. The result is a clear picture of your applicant pool — including where to find the next untapped student market.

Prince George’s Community College Aims to Define Value Proposition with Hanover’s Data Insights

“Prince George’s Community College’s decision to work with Hanover stemmed largely from the implementation of the college’s new strategic plan, which includes new key performance indicators and goals focused on student success, regional impact, and our organizational excellence. To achieve the new goals, research and analysis are important to provide the data we need to measure our success as well as define our value proposition in the county and the region. Working with Hanover will help us acquire baseline data that will shape how we implement our strategic plan. That is our focus now — we are interested in seeing what opportunities exist to create better learning environments for our students to succeed, meet workforce labor demands for businesses in the county and region, and strengthen the college’s overall value proposition.”
