Harding has institutional research/effectiveness needs that cannot be met without a significant investment in internal resources. We also recognize the need for external expertise and perspective to better understand where we fit into the higher education landscape. Although we have a general plan for where we want to be, we do not possess the depth of expertise in gathering necessary external information in order to make data-informed decisions to leverage us forward.
Hanover is established and well-respected as a research partner for institutions of higher education and provides Harding with a relatively cost-effective increase in IR capacity to address urgent requests. Initial interactions with Hanover demonstrated the flexibility and range of topics that are necessary to meet Harding’s needs. Hanover’s ability to ramp up quickly, customize a research queue based on a prioritization process to identify needs, and get immediate access to the digital resources were all factors in the decision for Harding to partner with Hanover. Seeking external partners dedicated to IR projects brings a sense of relief to the leadership team while building confidence that we will have the necessary support to accomplish our priorities without having to make a permanent investment in a new personnel line.
