The COVID-19 pandemic is causing much disruption in higher education, with institutions having to instantaneously pivot to online teaching and many predicting double-digit enrollment losses for fall. During this time of disruption, SightLine has been focusing on serving as a resource for higher education institutions by publishing thought leadership articles, reaching out to clients to understand their needs and concerns, and keeping up with the ever-evolving news and policies that impact colleges and universities.
In March, SightLine partnered with the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) for a two-part article (Part 1, Part 2), providing institutions actionable ideas on how to engage with students during the COVID-19 crisis. In the upcoming months, SightLine will also be hosting webinars to help institutions develop strategies to engage students over the summer months.
The need for increased targeted enrollment efforts, more focus on student retention, plus the need for streamlined budgeting amplifies the need for SightLine’s services. SightLine’s predictive analytics proactively support students throughout the student lifecycle, from enrollment all the way through graduation.
