is a term that has emerged in recent years to describe companies' efforts to engage willing consumers in an ongoing dialogue to create lasting relationships. 1 For example, based on data, marketers target groups of consumers who exhibit a propensity to buy and invite them to connect with the company in a variety of ways.

How nice. It seems like a consumer-friendly approach, like a cereal company telling you how many ounces of cereal are in the box, or grams of sugar in a serving. So why do I anticipate weighty discussion of the NPC at the gathering of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators this month? In 2008, the Higher Education Opportunity Act introduced the NPC as a way for ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
