Students Don’t Read Email:
Why You Need a Mobile Communication Strategy in 2023



Why Email Doesn't Work

According to a recent study, less than 50% of students read emails from their institution, yet most universities almost exclusively rely on email for communicating with students – the Email Paradox.

How can we improve student success and retention if we can’t reliably communicate with students? It starts with solving the Email Paradox by engaging with new technology solutions and rethinking how you communicate with students on your campus.

During this webinar, we discuss how improving the way you communicate with students helps you keep those students engaged and more likely to succeed. You’ll learn that even if you’re not in the IT department, you can still use the right tech to ensure a positive experience that keeps students returning semester after semester.
