What We Do

Thriving students, thriving institutions.

Every student can thrive. But every student is also an individual – each with their own unique situations, traits, and motivators that determine how they’ll thrive at your university. Until now, there’s been no way to pull from hundreds of variables per person, identify predictive patterns, and deliver individualized solutions to help every student.

And that is what we do.

vibeffect’s unique ability to identify high-thriving students within university ecosystems allows us to generate predictive, individualized guidance for all students. Verifiable and data-driven, this unprecedented approach to reaching students directly with custom guidance increases applicant, enrollment, start, persistence, on-time graduation and job placement rates . 

At vibeffect, we partner with universities and other institutions eager to proactively stabilize and grow enrollment and on-time completion rates for ALL students.

How We Do It

We engineered the first scientific model to increase student thriving and on-time graduation for higher education institutions.  With our simple implementation process you’ll see evidence quickly, there’s no new learning curve for your staff, and we constantly build and adapt your custom solution as we collect additional data. Plus, our solution will complement any existing retention or persistence programs you may have in place.

vibeffect is the leader in using science to assist institutions of higher learning in meeting students where they are and helping them define their own success.

From data collection to implementation, our proven, three-phase process is simple:
