Is your institution well-positioned to drive Student Success?
Higher education is undergoing a fundamental change and scrutiny and expectations are higher than ever. Retention, persistence, and completion rates are not just metrics to evaluate an institution; they also represent significant revenue.
An effective student success strategy sets the foundation of any successful retention program, and requires a mix of technology and retention expertise.
Determining your school’s ability to deliver student success requires an in-depth assessment of organizational structure, personnel, programs, and processes, and available data. You are invited to a webinar that will discuss the Student Success Audit and the need to align resources with strategy to ensure that desired outcomes can be achieved.
Higher education is facing unprecedented pressure to revamp its old business models, creating demand for new value-based practices, processes, and technologies to best enroll modern students and bring them all the way through to completion. Leadership during this time of upheaval requires a strong vision and clear prioritization of goals. Forward-thinking college and university leaders are finding ways to not only survive the change but also thrive in the new higher education landscape.
This thought-provoking presentation will give you the tools you need to help your institution thrive during this ever-changing and challenging new higher education landscape. Through relevant case study, you’ll discover how to keep your institution’s mission and goals intact while simultaneously inspiring a competitive edge.

The intense focus on student success has generated unprecedented pressure for improved retention and completion at institutions across the country and around the globe. At the foundation of an effective student success strategy is harnessing the right technology resources to drive results and positive outcomes.

What does it mean to be a success-oriented institution?
From retention through persistence to completion, many institutions are re-examining how they engage with their students to ensure a successful outcome. Many strategies that seek to improve success rates leverage both data and personnel to first identify and then engage with students who are at risk of leaving the institution. Over time this combination of data and personnel can also be employed to attract and recruit students who are more likely to be retained by the institution.
View this webinar where we examine how institutions can leverage their data and organize their personnel to orient themselves as a Retention-Focused Institution.

What is student success? Do student retention rates or completion rates measure success? For institutions to effectively measure student success they must develop institutional definitions of success that are both mission and outcomes oriented. And, these goals should be measurable. View this webinar presented by Meghan Turjanica where she recaps a recent white paper outlining the current difficulties with defining and measuring student success. Participants will walk-away with recommendations and how-to’s for institutions to create their own definition and goals.
