Path Extends Portal to Prospective Students and Alumni
Personalized prospective student and alumni portal experiences drive community and engagement across the student lifecycle
DENVER, September 8, 2021 — Today Path, an innovative cloud-based higher ed portal, announced the expansion of its platform to support prospective students and alumni.
Path offers an innovative platform that connects users, including students, faculty, staff and now prospective students and alumni, to the personalized information they need. Prospective student and alumni views will feature information important to these groups, while hiding irrelevant features and data. Institutions decide what information to surface for these specialty roles, creating a truly unique engagement opportunity.
“Path is dedicated to creating a meaningful and memorable student experience, and that extends to the entire student lifecycle,” said Chase Williams, Path CEO. “We’re excited that we can give prospective students early access to the tools and information they need to set them up for success and give alumni a way to stay connected to each other and their alma mater.”
Path Groups, a secure social networking and engagement feature within the portal, is available for these new users, enabling them to connect and bond based on similar interests and build community across generations.
Path Tasks is also available, allowing higher education institutions to remind prospective students and alumni of important tasks and upcoming due dates. In-app notifications, alerts, email and mobile push notification capabilities increase the reach of important tasks, driving engagement and completion.
Extending these features to students outside of their traditional educational experience will help increase institutional reach and build affinity for the university by reinforcing a robust community culture.
“The institutions we work with were looking for a way to drive enrollment and increase alumni engagement,” said Brian Alexander, Path Chief Product Officer. “Extending the portal to everyone provides invaluable intergenerational opportunities for engagement, connection and community building.
