Extended Abstract

As an education-focused company, we work to ensure institutions, educators, and students have the tools and support they need to be successful. As we strive to support the education community in this rapidly evolving landscape, we've been asking ourselves the following questions:

  • What is the value of higher education in today’s world?
  • What does it mean for students and institutions to be successful?
  • What kind of impact has the COVID-19 pandemic had on student success and engagement?

With these driving questions in mind, we launched our 2nd annual global benchmark study, The State of Student Success and Engagement, in partnership with Hanover Research. To check the pulse on student success, we conducted a survey in 17 countries, asking thousands of current students, administrators, and faculty from higher education institutions to define the components of student success and identify factors for engagement. We also investigated these groups' perceptions of both the impact of COVID-19 and the role of socioeconomic factors on the educational experience. Join this session to learn more about what Higher Ed is thinking and what that means for you.
