In addition to our affiliation with the University of Chicago, NORC has worked with numerous institutions of higher education on a variety of education-related studies, including assessments of campus climate, faculty working climate, and data collection and analytics consulting. We have worked with individual institutions, professional schools within institutions, and coordinated groups of institutions, depending on the scope of each project. We are available to consult on or provide additional analytical capacity to existing projects, to conceptualize and carry out data collection and evaluation projects of any scale, or anything in between.
Associations and Companies
NORC works with professional and academic associations and other non-profit and commercial organizations that wish to collect data on or otherwise learn more about educational processes and outcomes. NORC tracks educational attainment and career outcomes by field of study to better understand workforce characteristics by both discipline and industry, and designs studies around the analytic needs of the client’s association or industry perspective.
NORC has conducted extensive work with federal agencies, including the Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and others. We have also worked with state and local governmental agencies to provide data collection, evaluation, and other research services. We continue to pursue additional work with governmental entities and remain involved in some of the nation’s largest educational research efforts.
