Ball State University designates Aviso Retention as their Student Success platform to continue improving the progress, persistence and success of Ball State University students.

Columbus, OH, May 15, 2019 – Ball State University, based in Muncie, IN, has chosen to partner with Aviso Retention to provide an improved experience for students and enable their staff to accurately identify student risks through predictive modeling.

The partnership between Aviso Retention and Ball State will advance their efforts in focusing on holistic student support and the use of custom predictive data to proactively engage with the right students, at the right time. Being an advocate and steward for all students, Ball State found immense value and alignment with Aviso Retention’s unrivaled 100% ADA & WCAG accessibility compliance.

“Aviso Retention’s early alert and predictive analytics tools will enhance the student success initiatives for our university. Aviso will help staff focus attention on the right students at the right time in a proactive manner,” says Ball State’s interim Vice President for Student Affairs, Ro Anne Royer Engle.  

“Students are bombarded by emails and the ability to use two-way texting with a student or assign tasks that they can access through the student interface will enhance student engagement and accountability.”

Aviso will also allow staff to work more efficiently by accessing all the student information they need, in one place during important engagement opportunities.

“It has been a productive, cooperative and rewarding experience so far. The team has been helpful and patient, but also provides appropriate nudges when needed to keep the implementation schedule on track. We have really appreciated the guidance of the client success staff in this process,” continued Engle.

“Prioritization of student engagement has never been more difficult for an institution and their student success staff. Ball State University recognizes this, and came to us wanting to fundamentally change how interactions occur,” said Alex Leader, CEO of Aviso Retention.  “We’re very excited to work with Ball State University given their history as a change agent in the higher education student success community. We look forward to a fruitful partnership and helping to impact the lives of the students we serve.”
