We work with you to develop a project plan that meets your strategic goals, budget and timeline. We coordinate the team needed to get the job done, either your staff or our consultants. Then we develop and drive the project plan to meet the goals we’ve set for ourselves.
Higher Education Research and Analysis
We bring deep experience analyzing existing national research on higher education issues, including the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). IPEDS provides extensive institutional data for all institutions offering federal financial assistance. In addition, Terri has analyzed and reported the national data for NC-SARA, the National Council for the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements, since data was first reported in 2016. The NC-SARA data is also publicly available and provides rich information about where students are studying at a distance in the U.S. We have also assisted higher education clients in preparing for regional and specialized accreditation self-studies and visits.
Primary research experience includes the creation of surveys to learn exactly what’s on the minds of your constituents. We work with you to develop and test survey questions, launch the survey and analyze the results. Reports and presentations are authored to help you share what you’ve learned with leadership and colleagues in your organization.
Writing is part skill and part art. Our CEO Terri learned to write as a business major, and has honed her craft over years of writing professional reports, grant proposals, articles and blogs on numerous topics. If you need to produce content and don’t have time or resources to do it yourself, we can help.
