Fireside Chat: From Surviving to Thriving in the New Virtual World

  • Jonathan Clues, Founder and CEO of Student Bridge
  • Luke Schultheis, Ph.D., Vice of President of Enrollment at Fairleigh Dickinson University
Session Overview

Last year the COVID-19 pandemic caused mass chaos and panic as campuses around the world were immediately shut down and life as we knew it came to a dramatic halt. Institutions were in the midst of yield season and had to quickly pivot to online learning and virtual events. Some quickly adapted while others waited for a return to normal.

As the British mathematician Peter Hilton wisely explained, “Adaptability to change is itself a hallmark of successful education.” The most successful institutions have not only adapted but have embraced the opportunity to dramatically transform how they attract, interact with and convert prospective students through digital experiences.

Joining forces at the start of the pandemic, Fairleigh Dickinson University partnered with StudentBridge to innovate and optimize their full suite of virtual experiences to engage students from initial search to stepping foot on campus.

Listen in to Jonathan and Luke discuss their digital transformation journey, the results they have seen so far and their plans for innovating in the future.
