Loras College partners with research firm


Dubuque (KWWL) --  Alta Vista Research Group, a private, for-profit research firm, announced its opening on the Loras Campus. The independent research firm, headed by President Bob Woodward III, will have an office located in Keane Hall on the Loras College campus.

The new full-service research firm will replace the Center for Business and Social Research at Loras College, which was founded in 1985. The Center for Business and Social Research, under the direction of Leonard Decker, Ph.D., has assisted various organizations by conducting descriptive research to meet their needs. Alta Vista Research Group will take the original center to the next level by combining the expertise of a team of research professionals with the academic rigor of Loras College.

"It gives them a real upgrade on their portfolio when they're out looking for a job whether it's in this region or beyond. To say I actually specifically did this type of survey instrumentation, I did this type of research. It's going to give them a leg up on a lot of the individuals they're going to compete with," Loras College President James Collins said.
