Improve retention by strengthening admissions
Improving student retention is a high academic priority. It is essential to retain the new students you’ve worked so hard to recruit, admit, and enroll, and provide them with the tools to succeed at your institution. The STRONGER Me is a powerful program to strengthen admissions and launch students on a success trajectory. This online independent learning program in critical thinking is designed to prepare undergraduates for college level learning even before they arrive on campus.
Independent learning with critical thinking assessment
The STRONGER Me: A self-assessment and personal development opportunity delivered to your incoming students asynchronously, online:

Your entering students can self-assess to identify their strengths and discover areas where they can grow. The CSS targets the thinking skills and attributes essential for academic success. Offer this assessment in any context where independent learning is appropriate, when students come to campus, or before they arrive.
- CSS provides an in-depth assessment of your incoming cohort – Individual and group scores that can be used to quickly identify students at risk, useful information for your student success professionals.
- Insight Development Program (IDP) – An independent learning program providing information about thinking and problem-solving, using reflective thinking exercises students will see as useful for their education, life and work. Students can easily direct their self-training efforts, preparing for their upcoming college or university experience, addressing gaps and building on strengths.
