Wisr helps universities build connections to engage alumni and prepare students for careers.

Make a plan.

“I have some ideas for improving engagement, but I need a cohesive strategy to get the most mileage from limited resources.”

Scale it up.

“My department already has a solid engagement strategy in place. I need a way to scale our current efforts to reach more constituents.”

Our goal is to help you bridge gaps at every stage of the student lifecycle.

Wisr is more than an engagement software platform. We help you meet your department's goals through a combination of education, strategy consulting, personalized launch support, and pioneering technology.

Need inspiration for your engagement strategy? Welcome to Wisr Academy.

We've taken what we’ve learned from working with 300+ higher ed leaders at 200+ institutions and created a learning center for higher ed professionals looking to improve their engagement efforts. Through in-person summits and digital courses, we'll arm you with strategies and tactics to “level up” your engagement initiatives - and the skill sets needed to execute them successfully.

Virtual Courses

Psst! We have a secret. Software isn't always the best engagement solution. Institutions are much more successful in launching student and alumni networks when they first have a comprehensive engagement strategy in place. Whether you're ready to take the first steps towards implementing a strategy or you're looking for input on how to improve your current plan, Wisr Academy offers a selection of virtual courses for you (and your team!) to participate in from the comfort of your office. From free, introductory classes to intensive 4-week courses, you'll gain the skills and expertise to modernize student and alumni engagement at your institution.

Executive Summits

Focused dialogue among peers is a powerful way to address higher education’s most daunting challenges. Each Wisr Executive Summit is an intimate, think tank-like event designed to gather leaders around a key theme related to student and alumni engagement, explore how other institutions are attacking problems related to that theme, and provide actionable solutions.

It’s been a pleasure working with the Wisr team. Our ideas and observations have been keenly integrated into the software, and the team is always open to our perspective. While working to launch the networks, our questions and concerns have been met with collaborative, real-time assistance.

The Wisr team demonstrates impressive agility when it comes to promoting their product on campus, addressing concerns, or just being available to talk over an idea. This has truly been a partnership.

Wisr has been the absolute best gateway conversation to talk to anyone. Anyone who’s involved with students and alumni is interested in Wisr. You don’t have to convince them further than that. If you bring to the table that ‘I’d like to meet you and talk about student mentorship’, they’re all in. You’ve got the hour and the follow-up. That has just been so helpful in opening up communication lines across campus.

Wisr has also served as a great tool for getting young alumni engaged with the University. They have responded well to serving as mentors for current students.
