Research shows that students arriving unprepared for the college experience, academically and socially, is one of the leading causes of failure. By embedding tools which improve academic preparedness, identify individual student intervention needs and create a robust support network, institutions can help students over the first and highest hurdle in their college career.
Retention is an all encompassing measure of student success. It is influenced by every touch-point with a student and the impact of each touch-point can vary widely based on the student’s persona.
We believe that considering each touch-point holistically, through the lens of student personas, can result in dramatic improvements to persistence and retention.
In a recent PayScale survey of over 60,000 employers only 8% felt that graduates were “extremely prepared” for their new jobs. Whether it is Industry-Driven competencies or development of soft skills, we support development of curriculum to meet employer’s expectations. Our expanding suite of Career Readiness tools will further help students make a successful leap into their dream job.
