Coaching solutions tailored to four-year colleges and universities

Fueling equitable undergraduate degree attainment

Undergraduate colleges and universities are the storied backbone of America’s higher education system. However, over the past decade, there has been a noticeable decline in overall enrollment, presenting a significant challenge for these institutions. And many of these schools continue to grapple with the task of achieving their targeted degree completion rates.

As our country and our campuses grow more diverse, there is a desire to build a strong sense of belonging into the college community, helping students thrive and maximize their potential — especially among first-generation students, Pell-eligible students and students of color. And holistic, personalized coaching from InsideTrack can help.

Proven impact to support all students

For more than 20 years, InsideTrack coaching has helped institutions boost enrollment, strengthen retention, drive re-enrollment and improve career readiness — all while building a culture of inclusion and belonging. Our equity-centered coaching model is designed to support all learners, empowering individuals to overcome barriers, reconnect with their strengths and co-create a plan for their success. 

And for long-term, sustainable student success, we can help you reshape your advising and student-facing teams — going from transactional to transformational — by equipping advisors and leadership with the necessary tools to integrate InsideTrack’s coaching methodology into everyday use with students.

Our valued four-year college partners

The coaching has helped students to increase self-efficacy, to work against that sense of not belonging, of being an imposter. InsideTrack coaching helps students develop cognitive and emotional skills to navigate a complex system on their own.
