EP 157: Bridging the Communication Gap between Colleges and their Students

In an age of technology and the Internet, it might seem contradictory that college students are feeling increasingly disconnected from their schools and administrators. Over half of emails sent to students are left unread, and nearly 80% of students think that schools can improve their college experiences by improving communication. This disconnect can be partially attributed to a lack of proper communication services, as students tend to gravitate away from email as their primary form of communication. Apps on the market are too cluttered and confusing to use, leading to an even greater divide between universities and students.

But DubLabs is trying to reverse the trend of low student engagement. Since its founding in 2012, over 150 colleges now use DubLabs to keep millions of students engaged with campus life.

DubLabs’ approach centers around simplicity: an app that’s not “overloaded with features” and instead has a “dynamic feed-based interface” that is familiar to modern students. The app features two-way chat and notifications customized to each student to make staying connected easier than ever, allowing students to stay in the loop. They have access to their schedules and grades and can contact advisors and administrators quickly and easily. Instead of struggling to figure out what’s located where and how to access certain features, as was the problem with many other apps, everything is organized into a dashboard that simplifies things immensely.

When students feel disconnected and unable to communicate with their faculty support systems, grades drop and motivation is lost. But with DubLabs, the ability to connect leads to a heightened capacity to succeed.
