The key to conducting research that is actionable and useful is to ask the right questions. We start with that and build forward. Is your question best addressed with survey work? Focus groups? Interviews? We have expertise in all.

It's not enough to do great research. You also have to be able to communicate information effectively and provide the insight that makes it relevant.

John has experience with higher education research and evaluation at both the national and local level. For eight years he directed the largest and longest running study of higher education in the United States: the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP). He also established the office of Student Affairs Planning, Evaluation and Research at Dartmouth College, using the CIRP and other  national surveys as well as local surveys he created, to examine the student experience at Dartmouth. 

Partnering with colleges and universities, associations, foundations, and other organizations to make research come alive is our passion.
