“A strong start can make all the difference in ensuring students succeed, and that all begins by helping students clarify their goals, develop a plan and take responsibility for their future. Partnering with InsideTrack enables us to provide timely support to students in a cost-effective way. We’re also using insights gained through the coaching process to optimize our other enrollment and student support operations.” —Renata Engel, interim vice provost for Online Education at Penn State University
The Strong Start Coaching program is one of many solutions InsideTrack offers to assist institutions in effectively supporting students through critical junctures in the student lifecycle.
“Decades of research clearly show how students’ initial success affects their long-term outcomes,” said Pete Wheelan, CEO of InsideTrack. “Our Strong Start Coaching spans that critical period, beginning at admission and extending through the initial terms, when students develop the attitudes, beliefs and skills that will shape their future. We’re proud to be partnering with Penn State World Campus and other leading institutions at the forefront of student support innovation to develop solutions like this.”
