elevating academic success:

Research results you can replicate to improve student performance

Explore how you can apply our recent RCT (randomized controlled trial) results to boost academic success for students at your institution. 

Join the Webinar — Wednesday, May 25th at 11 AM ET

New results:

16% Students who received text messages from Mainstay were 16% more likely to earn a B or higher in the class

11+ points First-generation students earned final grades about 11 points higher than similar students not receiving supportive messages

Personalized support that empowers students

What if you could give each student the individual support and timely encouragement they need to excel in required courses? Our latest chatbot research project indicates this intervention moves the needle on academic performance.

Join Mainstay CEO Drew Magliozzi; Lindsey Fifield, Project Director at Georgia State University; and Katharine Meyer, Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Annenberg Institute for an exploration of our latest RCT results and learn how your higher ed institution can deploy these strategies to help students pass required courses, improve their letter grades, and stay on the path to graduation.

We’ll also explore:

  • Why timely, empathetic messages are so effective for first-generation students
  • How Mainstay successfully supports students through online classes 
  • Student feedback and the impact on faculty and staff
