Howard Bell, Senior Vice President and Starfish General Manager, shares his experience at the recent Achieving the Dream Integrated Advising & Support Institute.
Last week, Starfish by Hobsons had the pleasure of attending Achieving the Dream’s 15th annual DREAM conference in beautiful Long Beach, California. As I reflect on my time at DREAM, there are three big themes that continue to come up.
One of my favorite parts of our upcoming Hobsons Summer Institute is honoring the Starfish clients who are pushing the industry to raise the bar for student success, drawing on the strengths of their staff, advisors (counselors), faculty, students, and Starfish solution.
Starfish supports nearly 500 institutions on its platform -- impacting more than 4 million students every term. We effect change with our schools by integrating enhanced case management tools, predictive analytics, student support and academic planning on a single platform.
Educational goals take a backseat when students are unable to support their own basic food and housing needs. Starfish is extremely proud to partner with the Hope Center to give our institutions the ability to identify and support these students in need and help them reach their academic goals.
