Small enrollment institutions attract students on the promise of a personalized and high-touch college experience. However, these institutions often share that their size poses unique challenges, including constrained resources and an over-reliance on faculty to deliver advising. These challenges and others leave many small-school administrators reluctant to implement new student success initiatives or technology.
Recently, leaders from two small-enrollment institutions that partner with EAB sat down with Managing Director Jocelyn Powers to discuss their experiences working with EAB to implement new technology, gain buy-in, and improve outcomes. Hear from Nancy Biggio of Samford University (3,168 students) and Farrah Jackson Ward of Elizabeth City State University (1,535 students) in the videos below.
