What problem does your product or service address?
With access to accurate, current information on curriculum trends at U.S. colleges and universities, our members are able to make more informed decisions about educational program planning, policy and allocation of educational resources.
For whom is this a problem?
A variety of stakeholders: institutions of higher education, industry, policy makers, students and parents.
What is the solution you are providing?
Our solution has been the development of a system and process that enables us to accumulate and analyze data about curriculum. The results of this research are a valuable resource for:
· institutions of higher education during their efforts to evaluate and plan curriculum to meet the expectations of their customer base, both students and industries.
· the business community; by providing insight into curriculum at the higher education level, our research widens the door for the business community to provide greater feedback and collaboration on educational programs and programming to support their business requirements.
Why is your organization best suited or capable of doing this (e.g. existing infrastructure, talent/experience)?
Our organization is outfitted with the technical talent that designed and maintains our research system capabilities and leadership and research talent committed to providing needed information to our community of educators, industry participants and other stakeholders.
How does your product or service differ from current solutions?
To our knowledge, no other organization provides this type of in-depth solution applied to the lack of information about higher education curriculum.
