Kellogg Community College Selects Starfish By Hobsons Student Success Platform

To Increase Retention Rates on Campus, Kellogg Community College Partners with Starfish by Hobsons Student Success Platform

ARLINGTON, VA -  June 11, 2018 - Hobsons, the education technology leader, today announced that Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Mich. has selected the Starfish Enterprise Success Platform as part of its initiative to increase student success and retention rates on campus.

Kellogg Community College will implement Starfish in Fall 2018 across five campuses, which serve approximately 10,500 students. Kellogg Community College joins 476 higher education institutions across the country that actively use Starfish, including large systems such as the California Community Colleges and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.

“We are excited to implement Starfish across our campuses, and feel that the platform is the best option for our students and faculty,” said Terah Zaremba, Dean of Student Services. “We were especially drawn to the ability for faculty and advisors to send flags and Kudos. It is important for us to raise flags for students who need additional assistance, but also to reinforce success that students are already achieving.”

“At Hobsons, we are dedicated to providing a holistic solution that connects students to the resources needed to help them succeed,” said Howard Bell, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Starfish. “We are excited to welcome Kellogg to the Starfish community, and we look forward to working together to provide the best student success resources for their students.”

The Starfish Enterprise Success Platform helps hundreds of colleges and universities efficiently scale their student success programs so that more students can achieve their academic and life goals. The Starfish platform helps higher education institutions identify at-risk students, pinpoint areas of concern, and connect students with valuable services. With Starfish, institutions can leverage reliable, actionable data to assess which services and interventions are working to keep students on track.
