HIGHER is open for registration! Join outstanding women in higher ed for a day of professional development designed to equip you with the tools and relationships to thrive.
Wisr gives you the tools to connect students, alumni, staff, and faculty so you can offer everyone on campus the resources they need.
Smart recommendations to make reaching out painlessAsking for help is hard. Wisr makes it easier by analyzing members’ goals, interests, and academic backgrounds to suggest approachable next steps as well as members who can help accomplish them. Recommended members are suggested based on thousands of data points like shared interests, levels of experience, and extracurricular activities.
Search filters to help members find life-changing connectionsOne size doesn’t fit all. Members can zero in on advisors who match their unique needs using dozens of search criteria including industry, employer, job title, city of residence, and specific things a member has volunteered to help with. Looking for a resume review from an engineer living in New York? No problem.
Communities to give your campus’s groups a digital homeCommunities help members connect based on meaningful things they have in common. Not all groups can meet up in person, and even those that can benefit from Wisr’s discussion forums, event calendars, and resource sharing tools. Whether you hope to support first-generation students, aspiring entrepreneurs, or women in STEM, communities are the perfect solution.
Call scheduling with template-style agendasWisr takes the headache out of writing an introductory message. Supplementing a chat feature, the call scheduler helps with planning conversations. When requesting calls, members choose from a configurable list of reasons for reaching out, and the network automatically creates an introductory message template. They just personalize a few lines and are ready to go with a well-written, professional call request.
Discussions forums to facilitate important conversationsMany members will have similar questions, so not all conversations on the network should be one-on-one. Forum-style discussions allow all members to weigh in on questions and offer advice. Whether your members are looking for the most life-changing classes, deciding where to live on campus, crafting resumes, or deciding between job offers, discussions can help.

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."
