Using the Right Channels to Impact Student Success

More than 50% - that’s the proportion of students that a 2016 survey found ignore email from their academic department or institution. If your email communication efforts may only be reaching half of your students, how can you impact student success and retention?

In this lunch and learn session, we’ll explore how the increasingly competitive market for digital experiences is demanding institutional communicators stand out to capture student attention. Explore the channels having the most impact on student success, including virtual communities and push notifications, and why any strategy for driving engagement needs to start with mobile.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why virtual communities are essential for building student engagement that leads to retention
  • Which digital channels are absorbing student attention most effectively, and why
  • How push notifications and direct messaging amplify the impact of student communications
