PeopleGrove transforms the way colleges and universities support their students, replacing silos across academic and student affairs with one central – and truly scalable – solution for showcasing student benefits.

Remove Barriers to Persistence

Connect the classroom to career and student outcomes

If students need academic mentoring, mental health support, or career advising, too often they don’t engage with existing resources their school offers – or don’t even know where to find them. And when students can’t engage with internships or other experiential learning opportunities (as many underserved populations struggle to do), confidence, student outcomes, and retention decline. For all students, traditional, non-traditional, and adult, PeopleGrove improves access to the resources and opportunities that enhance the academic experience.
