Strategic Partners

The Performance Enhancement Group, Ltd.

In 2001, a group of advancement and alumni relations professionals from eleven major universities collaborated with Performance Enhancement Group, Ltd. (PEG) to design a better method for gathering and analyzing alumni feedback. Their common goal was to convert alumni perceptions and preferences into actionable data. Together, the Alumni Attitude Study© was created. More than 200 universities and associations have now surveyed their alumni through the Alumni Attitude Study. No other market research program offers this breadth of alumni data along with this depth of statistical, competitive analysis in an easy-to-use, cost-effective program.
