As a small institution, we decided to partner with Hanover because of its expertise in working with higher education institutions of all sizes. We plan to use Hanover’s research to inform decisions that will help us meet critical institutional goals, such as understanding the workforce needs of our service area and how to meet those needs; enhancing our recruitment, retention, and student engagement strategies; improving our marketing efforts; and better understanding program and scheduling needs of students. As we debated whether to engage an external research partner, it became more apparent the cost/benefit of working with Hanover and the expertise and assistance they bring was something we could not pass up.
