    The student success team at Concordia University (Christopher Brandt, Andy Miller, and Elizabeth Polzin) – Wisconsin used Blackboard Intelligence to redesign and optimize their approach to student advising and academic support. Because of this coordinated approach to data-informed academic advising, the University has witnessed a 10% year-over-year increase in freshman student retention.


    Concordia University won the 2018 Catalyst Award for Optimizing Student Experience. This award honors those institutions whose educational and administrative innovations have markedly improved the total learner experience.
