Student Engagement Has Changed
Whether online or on-campus, Wisr knows that prospective students who engage with an institution are 3X more likely to attend in the fall. Working hand-in-hand with institutions, Wisr empowers clients to create thriving online communities where prospective and admitted students connect with current student leaders and faculty members before ever stepping foot on campus. Students provide essential peer-to-peer advice, faculty contribute guidance on majors/classes, and the institution delivers personalized and relevant online content.
Bridge gaps throughout the student lifecycle
Hit your department’s goals with easy to use software, dedicated program support, and a variety of ready-made solutions for key challenges on campus:

“Wisr and Wayne State University share a vision to provide on-boarding, academic and career support to our students at every major point in their lifecycle. We're excited to have launched Wisr with our recently admitted students, to provide trained current students as peer mentors through orientation and the first year experience. As we work to integrate this solution into Wayne State's mobile app, this will serve as a bridge to our faculty, alumni, and even our corporate partners.”
Dawn S. Medley
Associate Vice President of Enrollment Management, Wayne State University
"We knew that our previous metrics were imperfect and didn’t reflect the true scope of how often our alumni were offering mentorship. Now, we have robust analytics at our fingertips, giving us the ability to target future programming and outreach more strategically."
Dean of Career Development
"Working with Wisr has been incredible. It has always been a partnership since day one and they truly listen to our needs. It's rare to work with an online company that cares about the work you do and provides solutions to the issues you present. The Wisr team is creative, insightful, and a joy to work with."
Associate Director, Alumni Relations and Annual Giving Communications
"Wisr fills a role that smaller schools don’t have the internal infrastructure to do on their own. It’s like having a new staff member!"
Senior Director of Alumni Engagement
"The platform itself has given us the opportunity to reconnect with alumni, update records for our users, and provide a service our students and alumni have been asking for. We are seeing the connections across generations between our students and alumni."
Student Outreach Specialist, Alumni Engagement
"Wisr provides a one-stop shop to engage both students and alumni. Many schools like to find one-size-fits-all solutions that attack several different problems, but we like best-in-class solutions. Wisr doesn’t manage a million other products, so we receive great customer support."
Executive Director of Alumni Engagement & Annual Giving
"In a phrase, I would consider the Wisr team and the platform they’ve created to be Best in Class.”
Dr. Thomas Matthews
Executive Director of the Career Center
