ACADEMIC SUCCESS EXCHANGE
We’ve talked about marketing student success centers before, but we also know this is a frequently-requested topic that can have a big impact on center operations, so we opened the floor to this discussion again, so that new attendees had a chance to share their strategies and learn from others. This time, we were joined by one of our great clients, Andrew Pelletier of Housatonic Community College, who graciously shared some of the marketing strategies he employs in his Academic Support Center:
After Andrew brought up this last method, our support team showed attendees how to use the messaging features in Accudemia. Of course, while we hope you, the reader, are using Accudemia to track your center’s usage, Andrew’s suggestions can be modified for any center looking to drive traffic to their physical or online location.
What we loved most about Andrew’s methods is his desire to show students how easy it can be to access the center’s services. We’ve seen time and time again how many students are intimidated by the idea of getting help and sometimes assume that services will be difficult to access, or may not be friendly to them. The more you can show students that your center is warm, friendly, and easy to use, the more likely they’ll be to visit.
Here are some other ideas that were presented during this productive session (some of which we also went over in our previous session on this topic):
We hope this gives you some ideas about how to market your center as we approach the fall term! Fall is a great time to promote your offerings and take advantage of students’ enthusiasm before they get too far into the term. If you have any questions about how to leverage Accudemia, be sure to get in touch with us!
Engineerica Systems is pleased to present our Academic Success segment recap for 7/13/2021 for the weekly Accudemia sessions. We hope that these questions help you to ponder how you can ensure every student feels welcome in your center. Join us next Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. EST for our Weekly Accudemia Session and for more ideas about helping our students achieve success!
