student and coach text exchanges
Continue to increase persistence, engagement and success of first-generation and low-income students while making sustainable institutional improvements that benefit all students.
Coaching generated insights into the student experience that informed changes to the student support program. For example, when coaches realized students were confused by scholarship policies, Ivy Tech created short explanatory videos and updated information packets. When coaches learned of an issue requiring escalation, they helped coordinate cross-functional communication to offer the student a quicker resolution.
