Join us on January 21st at 11:30am (ET) to hear Providence College tell the story of how their campus-wide career readiness and student involvement initiative called “Friar Involvement Tracker (FIT)” began, how it's progressed until now, and how it will evolve in the future. Even despite COVID-19, Providence College continued finding ways to leverage Suitable's transformative web and mobile capabilities to supercharge student engagement and grow campus adoption of “FIT”. FIT is run out of the Career Center to scaffold the student experience and is not just a catchy name, with campus analytics, it’s a highly strategic and integrated learning plan. It provides students with the necessary toolkit to succeed in their life beyond Providence College. The FIT framework was also adopted by their School of Business and personalized to meet the needs of business students. This is only the start as more and more stakeholders at Providence turn to FIT as a virtual hub for their student’s experience. This session will provide:

  • An overview on FIT's origin and how it has progressed.
  • A look at how the Providence College School of Business personalized the system to meet their needs.
  • A quick tour through Suitable’s groundbreaking web and mobile platform.
  • Live Q&A breakout rooms with the Providence presenters.
