Benefits and Insights
Why use Starfish Retention Solutions?
Key differentiators & advantages of Starfish Retention Solutions
- Uncover the root concern
Your students do not typically leave because of a simple problem; they may not even know there is a problem before it is too late. Academic concerns are often the symptom of something much larger. Institutions need to be able to understand the whole student and uncover the root concerns as quickly as possible.
- Create a shared vision for success
You likely have different departments that each help students in their own way. Even if a new retention office is introduced to help “manage” communication flow, it can be difficult to break down culture barriers. What typically happens is these various groups become another end point in the process, leaving students isolated and data siloed. Institutions need a way to streamline communication and create a shared vision for success.
- Rescue your student information
You have a lot of data about your students already. Unfortunately, it’s probably stored across campuses, in different technologies, in file cabinets, and in spreadsheets. Institutions need a way to gather and reframe this data according to the students individually – not according to the system in which it’s stored – giving staff a valuable new perspective on their students.
- Leverage our experience
Your institution is unique. Your student success program needs to match your needs today and grow with you. The Starfish Enterprise Success Platform can integrate with your SIS, LMS, and Degree Audit as well as your systems for Athletics, Student Surveys, Analytics, Portal, Online Homework, and others – to help you bring together information, scale your student support initiatives, and reach more students, more effectively. In addition, the platform is backed by our client success team to walk you through every step of the process.
