Our Work - Community Colleges & Universities
Do you know what residents in your area think about the quality of education provided by your institution? Are students satisfied with the programs and services they're receiving and how do they rate them? Are there other programs or services you should be providing that would attract potential students to your institution? How does your faculty rate? Is there sufficient community support to increase funding for community college operations and/or new facilities? What needs to be included in your strategic plan for the next 5 to 10 years? What factors would likely increase support for the college's development efforts?
These are just some of the questions that EPIC·MRA has helped community colleges and universities get the answers to. EPIC·MRA can help your county or municipality get the information needed to make "informed" public policy decisions utilizing our survey research, custom database development services and database "products."
Survey Research - At EPIC·MRA, all phases of our survey research projects are managed by the firm's principals, who are experts in their field. We approach each survey project with a strong commitment to quality and confidentiality. From writing and refining the survey instrument to meet your needs, to designing the survey sample frame, administering the interviews, entering the data, conducting the analysis, and compiling the written reports and advancing recommendations, EPIC·MRA partners with you every step of the way.
Database Development Services - EPIC·MRA can create a custom database for your institution that includes the name, address and telephone number of the registered voters residing within specific geographical areas you identify. Working with you, and using census track and other data, we can add specific fields to the database that indentify particular groups, such as: employees, alumni, absentee voters, frequent voters, and other groups within the community or region that have an interest in your institution. By segmenting the database you gain more flexibility when it comes to communicating with specific groups about the programs, services and events at your institution that interest them the most.
Database "Products" - EPIC·MRA offers a broad range of database "products" to support your communication and outreach efforts with particular groups, or to support the local "YES Committee" in its voter identification and get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts. These include telephone calling lists, mailing labels, neighborhood walking cards, GOTV calling lists, Election Day poll lists and automated (ROBO) calls.
