PR Log - Mar 21, 2013 - Aviso Coaching Co-Founder and COO, Dr. Cam Cruickshank announced a Success Coaching Program developed by Aviso Coaching and Central Carolina Community College this week. The pilot program, which began in January, will be rolled out to all CCCC students in the summer of 2013.
The partnership is a perfect fit for both organizations. Aviso Coaching is a student retention solution that helps colleges and universities solve one of the biggest challenges in higher education: keeping students engaged, optimizing the chances of student success, and avoiding attrition. Aviso does this in a holistic way, by combining proven coaching methodologies with software tools and predictive analytics. Central Carolina Community College is one of the 58 two-year public institutions in the state-supported North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS). Serving more than 20,000 students, CCCC is a tax-supported, non-profit school that offers fully-accredited degree, diploma, and certificate programs focused on college and career readiness, professional training, and liberal arts education.
The new program is funded through a 5-year, $1.65 million Title III Strengthening Institutions Program grant from the US Department of Education and is part of CCCC’s broader efforts to promote student success, retention, and graduation. Through the program, Central Carolina Community College will leverage Aviso’s proprietary coaching software to track student attendance, monitor GPA, and develop student success plans. Aviso’s software application will be connected to the Blackboard Learning Management System to deliver crucial pieces of student data in real-time. In tandem with the project, Aviso is consulting with CCCC on hiring new coaches and redesigning its coaching methodology so that each student has a single point of contact throughout their college career.
Consistent relationships and instant access to key information is what makes the program so ambitious and so game-changing for students. “When coaches and advisors can combine strong relationships with the right information delivered at the right time, they can intervene immediately and solve issues before they become attrition-risk problems,” said Dr. Cruickshank. “Everyone benefits. Students have better equipped advocates who can be more proactive, coaches have better tools and more accurate information, and colleges have a more successful student body and a higher ROI for their tuition and tax dollars,” Cruickshank continued. As the program ramps up and expands to include the entire student body, both Aviso and CCCC are looking forward to a successful partnership with immediately measurable results.
