A collaborative initiative to provide market intelligence.

Given the challenging climate in which private, independent colleges and universities must now operate, college presidents and senior leadership need a shared understanding about the real marketing challenges facing private higher education.

Two longstanding marketing consultancies serving higher education, The Lawlor Group and RHB, created Higher Ed Intelligence as a data hub and analysis resource to uncover the prevailing industry-wide forces and operational practices that influence private higher education's marketing efforts and to provide possible solutions for addressing them.

This recently completed study identified the most pressing marketing needs from the standpoint of presidents at private colleges and universities.
