Many alumni organizations lack concise, actionable plans that inspire purposeful engagement. We conduct strategic analyses that look at organizational barriers and opportunities and provide a framework for delivering the mission of the alumni office.

Alumni Surveys and Focus Groups

What do alumni want? There is nothing like gathering both empirical research and conducting qualitative, conversational settings that helps to dig deep and identify alumni concerns.
