TIDES OF CHANGE IN HIGHER EDUCATION: NAVIGATING LIMITED RESOURCES
In the face of new and diverse student populations, rising performance expectations, increased competition and flat resources... institutions are feeling pressure to do more for their students with finite time, money and human capital.
How can institutions maximize investments in people, technology and time to drive better student success outcomes?

Examining the true cost of student success initiatives
Prioritizing what works and identifying opportunities to fine-tune programs to increase their impact
Providing differentiated support to retain more students
