Meet the Team.

We love asking questions, designing research methodologies and analyzing data — but our favorite part is seeing that knowledge bloom into meaningful strategies and exciting campaigns.

Our team built their careers in higher education, and everyone at SimpsonScarborough takes every project personally. We see ourselves as partners, working together to engage and support the institutions we work with.

Our Values.

Why do we work in higher education?

We’ve been in higher ed marketing from the beginning: we’ve seen the field mature, and we’ve grown and learned alongside our clients. We love geeking out about research methodology and analysis and sharing that excitement with anyone who will listen.

But the most rewarding part of our work is seeing our clients become partners — and often friends.
