Software designed to support your students

If your department has developed a support system for students, the next steps are to make sure every student has access to quality mentorship and bring specialized resources to underserved students. WisrConnect allows you to pair undergrads with impactful mentors at a large scale. With support for both one-on-one connections and groups, students can reach out to individuals for support or join communities for resources that are specific to a certain interest or identity. Students using WisrConnect see a list of alumni who have volunteered as advisors and whose interests match their own. Matches are based on a proprietary algorithm that considers hundreds of data points including academic profile, industries of interest, and extracurriculars. Students can also browse communities (e.g., First-Generation Students, Future Entrepreneurs, Peer Advisors) and join in on relevant conversations.

“With Wisr, we used the forms our admitted students were already filling out, and we created a report that gave us a solid profile of the students’ academic and co-curricular interests… Wisr ran our match through an algorithm, and the process that used to take a full work week happened while I drank my morning coffee.”
