In a rapidly changing higher education landscape, student success professionals must navigate additional challenges to retention, student mental health, and student engagement. Building on our experience with a wide range of student success professionals, academic leaders, and faculty, Academic Impressions has developed a comprehensive set of resources to help build the capacity of your team to equitably and holistically address the needs of your students. We divide our resources into three key focus areas:
Bolster student and academic support services to meet the needs of your most vulnerable student populations
Eliminate barriers to persistence and completion
Build engagement and belonging across the student experience
Address student mental health needs and challenges
Prepare your students with the hard and soft skills needed for a changing economy and future of work
Retention and Completion
Learn best practices for equitably increasing your retention and graduation rates, including closing the equity gap, institutional planning efforts, and supporting student needs.

PARTNER WITH YOUR ACCOUNT MANAGER FOR ONGOING SUPPORT
Your Account Manager is your strategic partner dedicated to both maximizing membership adoption and ensuring its impact. We are invested in the success of your team and we customize our approach to your professional growth and development.
We understand that access to membership does not equal adoption, and adoption does not necessarily result in impact. Your Account Manager will collaborate with your team to ensure they engage with resources in a strategic manner, which will ultimately result in a lasting impact on their growth.
Access: At the start of the partnership, your Account Manager will work with you to plan launching membership resources to all assigned users. They will collaborate with you on a communication plan, conduct virtual open houses with your users, and ensure those with membership access have the resources they need to succeed.
Adoption: Throughout the course of your membership, your Account Manager will monitor usage and help identify professional development opportunities that will engage your team.
Impact: With the help of stakeholders, your Account Manager will deploy one or more impact surveys over the course of the membership term to help you understand what impact professional development has had on individuals. We measure satisfaction and gain an understanding of what your users have learned by engaging with Academic Impressions professional development opportunities.
