'For many college students, staying on top of academic, financial, social and other responsibilities can be overwhelming at times. Having someone to support you and nudge you along can make all the difference,' said Ben Castleman, Assistant Professor of Education and Public Policy at the University of Virginia Curry School of Education and an expert on behavioral interventions in student success. 'A well-timed message providing students with simplified information, reminders and access to help can keep students on track. InsideTrack's uCoach platform makes it easier for student support teams to provide this outreach and track whether it leads to improved outcomes for students.'
