We partner with universities
on these higher education challenges

Strategic Planning

How does our research profile compare to peers? What are our strengths and weaknesses relative to benchmark groups?

Faculty Recognition

Which faculty are potentially under-recognized? What are the awards for which they might be most competitive? How do we maximize our awards effort?

Program Review

What is the comparative research strength of a program undergoing review?

Faculty and Graduate Student Mentorship

What milestones can we observe in successful faculty careers at peer institutions? How can we use this to strengthen our mentorship practices?

Retirement/Retention Planning

What will be the impact of upcoming departures or retention scenarios? Which faculty are most vulnerable to being recruited by other institutions?

Faculty Hiring

What will be the impact of our hiring priorities? Where can we allocate new resources to maximum impact?

Building/Assessing New Institutes

What would be the research strength of a new
institute or center we hope to create?

Assessing Doctoral Programs

What is the placement of our doctoral graduates who are now among faculty of other institutions? What patterns can we observe in their careers?

Assembling Teams/Building Interdisciplinary Units

Who are the subject matter experts who could contribute to the strongest interdisciplinary team? Who have we potentially overlooked in our search process? What would be the research strength of a new institure or center we hope to create?

Collaborative Networks

Who has published articles or received grants together in a particular theme? What does this suggest about the various collaborative networks across campus? Who should we encourage to work together in the future?

Over 120 institutions of higher education
use our data and tools to make informed decisions.
