Using the Power Patience to Reengage Stop Out Students

Or listen on:

About the Episode

According to Pew Research, only 62% of students who start a degree or certificate program finish their program within six years. The story—and potential—of stop-out students is more relevant than ever. This episode delves into the need for multi-pronged, intentional communication strategies that resonate with the unique challenges and aspirations of stop-out students. 

It's not just about filling seats; it's about enriching the educational landscape with diverse perspectives and life experiences. Whether you're a seasoned higher ed marketer or an administrator looking to make a difference, this episode will leave you with a deeper understanding of why patience and intentionality are the keys to engaging with this student population and how their return can shape a more inclusive and vibrant academic community.
