Declining student retention and graduation rates not only impact students, but they directly impact and damage the institution's long-term reputation, student enrollment, and income stream.
Through our student programs, we assist universities and colleges in identifying the main basic human life needs in their student population and partner with them to develop proactive interventions to address those needs. We then help track the impact of those actions to determine the ROI and adjust as necessary.

Understanding the challenges students face will help redirect them on the right paths toward degree attainment at your institution.
