When an institution has the opportunity to perform an external scan,

When an institution has the opportunity to perform an external scan, the results of that scan can help the institution know how to elicit community support and gather local affiliations. Besides helping the local community itself, community participation can only enhance the mission of that institution which in turn results in that institution’s physical and monetary growth. An external scan can provide valuable information about an institution’s surroundings including the community’s economical, educational, and cultural characteristics.

Select 3-5 data trend areas.

For this assignment, select an educational institution and provide the results of a previously conducted external scan.
