Improving Student Resiliency and Retention

A solution to a pressing issue

Colleges and universities face a real and growing problem of losing tuition-paying students because of their struggles with mental health obstacles. More than 50% of college students report experiencing anxiety and depression at some point during their time in college, and mental health is the second leading cause of students dropping out.

EmpowerU is proven to build engagement and resilience. This accessible and effective solution decreases student anxiety, increases confidence, and improves mood and connection over the six-week resilience training.

Mental health support in daily doses

Students complete a 15-20 minute daily resilience exercise that is supported by highly personalized, daily coaching. This powerful combination helps students stay focused, motivated, and on track, especially during the current chaos in our world. Resilience is a muscle that we help students strengthen one day at a time, one step at a time throughout the six-week program.

A boost for career success

A 2019 McKinsey report identified resilience as the best predictor of career success. Students who complete the EmpowerU program will not only have increased focus and emotional wellbeing, but they also will receive a micro-certification in resilience training to add to their resume.

What People are Saying
