Since joining Art & Science Group in 2012, Courtney Connor has helped colleges, universities, and independent schools find the most compelling ways to “tell their story” and develop institutional strategy to reach their enrollment, financial, and mission-driven goals. In her role as Managing Associate, Courtney works with the firm’s partners to guide clients throughout the project process, helping them articulate their needs, designing and executing research projects to address those needs, and translating findings into strategic and tactical recommendations. She has led or played a critical role in projects for a variety of the firm’s independent school and higher education clients, including Bryn Mawr School, Tower Hill School, National Presbyterian School, Case Western Reserve University, and Guilford College. Before moving into her role as Managing Associate, Courtney directed the firm’s research team, developing survey instruments and managing fielding of all projects.

Prior to joining A&S, Courtney worked in the Research and Evaluation Department at the Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development. Among other projects, she was responsible for the qualitative component of a comprehensive study funded by the Maryland State Department of Education’s Childhood Development Division. Her work at Georgetown contributed to the development of strategies to identify at-risk children, teach families how to advocate for children with special needs and improve pre-school retention.
