Join today to hear from the University of Wyoming as their administrators tell the story of how their undergraduate experiential learning and career readiness initiative called “UW SOAR” has progressed, evolved, and adjusted over the past 12 months.
 
Despite COVID-19, the University of Wyoming continues to find ways to leverage Suitable's transformative web and mobile capabilities to personalize their student experience and grow campus adoption of “UW SOAR”.
 
UW SOAR is run out of ACES (Advising, Career, and Exploratory Studies Center) to scaffold the student experience and consists of high impact experiential opportunities that will engage, shape and prepare students to meet the complex challenges of the future.
 
Over last year, individual UW academic units have decided to personalize UW SOAR to increase the value offered to their specific student populations. Namely the College of Business and Honors College. This is only the start as more and more stakeholders at UW turn to SOAR as a virtual hub for their student’s experience.
 
This session will provide:
  • An update on SOAR’s progress and key developments over the past 12 months.
  • A look at the personalized Business SOAR and Honors SOAR pathways constructed.
  • A quick tour through Suitable’s groundbreaking web and mobile platform.
