Increase Student Success with a Digital Community Strategy

Studies have shown that when students feel like they belong they are more likely to have better persistence, engagement, and mental health. Their connectedness with the campus community protects them from stress and contributes to an improved sense of belonging, proven to have positive downstream impacts on retention.

However, each student’s situation is different and it’s not always easy for students to engage with their school or their peers. Likewise, it can be difficult for institutions to identify students who are disengaged and intervene with the right resources before it’s too late.

The right digital platform can help institutions support students in building community and finding their tribe, whether they live on campus, commute to classes, or learn online. Faculty and staff can easily take the pulse of campus life and communicate effectively and efficiently with students. An online community space also helps identify and support students before they become at-risk.
