Austin, Texas (July 11, 2022) – ReUp Education, a leading tech-enabled provider empowering adult learners, has announced a new partnership with Utica University. This new partnership expands on both Utica University’s and ReUp’s commitments to help adult learners enroll and graduate as part of their journey to pursue economic and social mobility in a 21st-century economy. With this new partnership, ReUp will bring a unique combination of technology, data, and personalized one-on-one coaching to Utica University learners and support their mission of providing learners with a professional education.
Completing a college degree has profound impacts on social and economic mobility. Those with a degree are half as likely to be unemployed as those with a high school diploma and demonstrate significantly higher levels of happiness, health, and community involvement.
Jeffery Gates, senior vice president for student life and enrollment management at the University, said this further demonstrates Utica’s commitment to all its students.
“We know that non-traditional age students often face a host of difficulties that are different from those of traditional students,” Gates said. “With that in mind, Utica University is committed to providing assistance where needed, and helping those students on their path to successful completion of their degrees.”
Since 2015, ReUp has been helping higher-ed institutions engage, enroll, and support adult learners. Leveraging patented technology and one-on-one personalized coaching services, ReUp’s approach will help Utica University reach learners who have previously put a pause on their education. This partnership will provide Utica University learners with specialized holistic support from ReUp that takes into consideration the key factors that impact a learner’s decision to re-enroll and their unique journey towards earning their degree.
As part of the partnership, ReUp will also serve as an expert on adult learners for Utica University, offering institution-specific insights and strategic recommendations based on industry trends, millions of data points on adult learners, and direct learner feedback.
“As a former adult learner, I know only too well the challenges that face other adult learners as they pursue a degree. Time, money, and a support system are all crucial elements of a learner’s journey through higher ed, yet for too many of these degree-seekers, these factors are massive barriers to completion,” said Terah Crews, CEO of ReUp. “Through our new partnership with Utica University, we are helping expand the support and resources available for adult learners, in turn helping to make the rollercoaster ride of higher education just a little less turbulent.”
