We decided to partner with Hanover because we were looking for customized research, based on our specific questions and in the unique context of our institution, as opposed to aggregate data on national trends in higher education. We are looking to Hanover to help us achieve our goal of expanding beyond our traditional approach to undergraduate education. We seek concrete answers about what the viable options are for us based on our specific circumstances so that we can be the best stewards of our resources. We plan to invest in environmental scans and individualized market analyses for potential new programs. With comparative data on student demand, employer demand, competitive saturation, etc., in hand we should be able to make well informed decisions about the most suitable new programs to pursue.
