Starfish by Hobsons can help your institution scale its student success, support and retention initiatives to enable students to engage more effectively with the campus community and achieve their academic goals.
In the first year of implementation and use, the Starfish platform has led to increased communication among faculty, advisors, students, and support services, as well as an increase in the university’s formal retention rate. The successful adoption of the Starfish platform can be attributed to the capabilities of the platform and ease of use, the full-time and part-time faculty commitment to student success, and the personnel on the Starfish implementation team.
