We help today's education leaders solve their biggest problems.

We start by forging and finding today's best practices. Then, we hardwire those insights into each organization with our technology and services.

  • Finding and enrolling the right students

Through best practices research and decades of experience from our colleagues in Enrollment Services, we provide data-driven undergraduate and graduate solutions that target qualified prospective students; build relationships throughout the search, application, and yield process; and optimize financial aid.

How We Help With Enrollment

Featured resource: Our latest survey on student communication preferences

Enrollment teams work hard to perfect their messages for prospective students. But those messages can get lost in today’s maze of communication channels. To help you achieve the greatest impact, we surveyed 5,580 college-bound students about their media use and preferences. Download the survey.

We combine technology, research, and consulting to help you identify your most at-risk populations, coordinate cross-campus resources so students can find the help they need, and analyze the data that informs your decision making.

Infographic of the Week

To compete for prospective students, many universities are turning to flashy facilities, such as luxury residence halls and state-of-the-art buildings. But the allure of brand-new buildings can fade if there’s not regular maintenance for all buildings, new and old.

Best Practice of the Week

For first-gen students, the initial campus transition is the hardest, but the challenges continue across the academic term. To provide support beyond orientation, Eastern Kentucky University developed the EKU GURUs program—a centralized, accessible resource to triage any student question or concern. Unlike traditional one-stop shops, GURUs are student employees who become a partner in problem-solving and work side-by-side with first-gen students to address any challenges they are facing.
