Improve outcomes for students who may otherwise struggle to persist in college. Historical trends in student outcomes and insights from predictive analytics helped ODU identify the group of first-year students who would be invited to receive coaching.
The students who participated in the first-year coaching program met with their success coach every week for 20-30 minutes and attended workshops on topics like time management, career exploration and budget planning. Fueled by insights gained from coaching, ODU also redesigned their outreach and onboarding process.
