At community colleges across the country, unnecessary credits have become a problematic norm, delaying completion and costing students precious time and money in the process. The question for educators is: “How can we help students choose the right classes and graduate on time?” In this case study, see how Lee College in Baytown, TX is using Career Coach as part of a comprehensive plan to help students clarify their goals and stay on their selected pathway.
Every year, hundreds of colleges and universities use Career Coach to help their students explore careers, find the right academic program, and take the next step by applying for jobs in their local area. Here are two updates we introduced recently to make Career Coach an even more effective tool for educators and the students they serve.
The University of Alaska (UA) system has enjoyed remarkable success with Career Coach since its late 2017 launch. UA’s marketing strategy has been a major win, university leadership is in full support, and traffic on the tool is high. We asked UA to share some of their success story with us, and they graciously responded with this case study.
