Innovation is an interesting concept, perhaps a little like other big ideas such as ‘excellence’ and ‘beauty’ where each person enjoys a slightly different flavour, but all know it when they see it. If people had to define it in the abstract, they would never reach a suitable agreement. People agree that innovations are new ideas, approaches, products or processes; they often help society do, see or think in new ways. Against the backdrop of current norms, innovations standout as ‘different’. But difference is not all that is required to make something truly innovative.

Over the last five years, Ramapo College of New Jersey has been intentional with academic advisement and their use of Starfish Early Alert. Using Starfish by Hobsons, Ramapo College of New Jersey created a loop of communication between campus departments, and streamlined its outreach efforts on its campus of 6,000 students to lead more students to succeed in their academics.
We know that today’s colleges and universities are committed to advancing educational excellence and preparing students to become thoughtful, engaged citizens of the world. But as the national conversation about student success evolves, it’s time to ask if students should be the only ones to shoulder the burden of readiness.
Holistic approach leverages Starfish and PAR capabilities to provide institutional leadership with guidance, trusted data, and actionable insights to scale student success across campus.
Hobsons is at the National Academic Advising Association’s (NACADA) 40th annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Supporting higher education academic advising that enhances student success, NACADA ATL: Advising to Learn conference has more than 3,000 advising professionals attending the conference this year.
