2 MARKET EVALUATION Demand for an Interdisciplinary PhD in Health and Human Science - In this report, Hanover Research explores the potential labor market and student demand for the University s proposed interdisciplinary PhD in Health and Human Science program. The report is organized into three sections. The first section addresses potential labor market demand for the proposed program through a review of literature on evidence-based practice in health care, an examination of national and regional employment projections, and a review of current regional job opportunities. The second section examines potential student demand for the proposed program primarily through an analysis of national degree completions trends. The final section profiles existing PhD programs in similar fields in the United States. A Review of Postsecondary Programs Designed for Students with Learning Disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or Autism Spectrum Disorder - In this report, Hanover Research identifies postsecondary institutions that offer degrees, certificates, structured programs, or program elements specifically designed to support students with learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), including Asperger s syndrome. Value of a College Degree - In this report, Hanover Research provides data comparing the value of a college degree across multiple fields of study and across institutions of varying quality, type, and cost. Local, Regional, and Statewide Labor Market Outlook - In this report, Hanover Research presents occupational and industry employment trends for the State, the defined region, and the defined statistical area. GIS Program Demand Study - In this report, Hanover Research assesses the national and regional student demand for GIS programs, focusing on certificate programs but also considering bachelor s and master s degree programs. The report is organized into two main sections. The first section looks at five-year IPEDS degree completion trends as a measure of student interest in certificate, bachelor s and master s degree programs in GIS, and also includes information on student enrollment levels and perceived demand gathered through phone interviews with administrators of regional certificate programs. The second section surveys existing certificate programs and undergraduate and master s degree programs in this and contiguous states, with detailed profiles of several regional certificate programs that highlight curricular structure, program resources, marketing strategies, and recruiting and admissions practices. Comparative Analysis of Law School Recruitment Strategies - In this report, Hanover Research profiles the recruitment strategies of ten of the School of Law s competitor institutions. Profiles include information on messaging, communication strategies, and the recruitment activities of these institutions according to content provided online, as well as an analysis of hard-copy materials sent by mail. The correspondence between Hanover Research and these institutions is also examined. Labor Market Audit: Current and Future Opportunities - In this report, Hanover Research examines the labor market outlook, as well as trends in graduate degree completions, for the region surrounding the University. The first section focuses on broad changes in the composition of the Region s labor market, and the regional employment outlook for a range of occupations through The second section discusses recent five-year trends in completions of graduate certificates and degrees at regional institutions, identifying programs that are potentially in high demand among students. 2

3 Master s Level International Business Law Dual Degree Program Demand - In this report, Hanover Research examines the potential demand for a dual degree program combining an LL.M. in international commerce or business law and a Master of Science in international finance or economics. The report reviews the expected demand for programs of this nature and examines similar offerings at other U.S. law schools. Graduate Program Market Scan - In this report, we aim to identify graduate programs that might be appropriate candidates for development at the College. In doing so, we take into account the labor market and employer demand in the State, and student demand via degree conferrals in the College s geographic region. Finally, we compare these programs with the strengths of the College s faculty. Further study is necessary in order to make more detailed recommendations.

The final section of the report profiles several competitor programs. Domestic Growth Marketing - In this report, Hanover Research presents the results of secondary research that provides contextual information regarding the potential for distance education market expansion in the Region. The report is organized into two main sections. The first section provides demographic and employment statistics, while also discussing a locally-relevant initiative and its potential implications for the future tertiary education market. The second section contextualizes the University s existing market share within the current regional distance education landscape by presenting enrollment data for two overlapping and related groups: national distance education enrollment trends for a distance education program, and external student enrollment trends for institutions located in the State.

Ethics Training at Peer and Major Universities - In this report, we first explore how widespread ethics training is among the University s peer and peer aspirant institutions and what form this training takes. Then, we examine a larger sample of mandatory ethics training programs at universities comparable to the University in order to identify common program features.

The final section presents an overview of the labor market for nursing professionals. Market Analysis for a Bachelor s Degree in Communication Management - In this report, Hanover Research assesses the market for a bachelor s degree program in Communication Management. The assessment includes an analysis of national and regional degree completion trends, focusing particularly on the University s peers and competitors, as well as an exploration of the labor market for communication graduates. The final section profiles similar programs at peer and competitor institutions. Market Analysis for a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Management - In this report, Hanover Research analyzes the market for a Bachelor of Arts program in multimedia management. First, we assess potential student demand by examining recent degree completions trends in the State. Secondly, we consider employment projections for occupations relevant to the field. Finally, we offer profiles of several extant degree programs closely related to the University s proposed offering in multimedia management. SWOT Analysis Part II: Comparison with Peer Institutions - In this report, Hanover compares institutional data for the School of Law with data for ten peer institutions. The first section incorporates statistical data from the American Bar Association (ABA) and data from institutional profiles in the subsequent section to place the University s law program in the context of peer programs along a variety of metrics. The second section of the report provides program profile data for each of the peer institutions across four categories: flexible program offerings; internships & externships; international study opportunities; and student activities.
