About the Student Success Content Hub

Inside Higher Ed’s Student Success content hub, with a daily newsletter and web section, is offering actionable news, ideas, advice and inspiration to higher ed professionals who care deeply about ensuring all students have what they need to be successful in college and beyond. Year-round coverage relates to academic life, the college experience, health and wellness, and life after college. In addition, each of these topics will be the focus of Student Voice surveys throughout 2023.

How to Contribute to Student Success:

The Student Success hub offers many opportunities for colleges and universities, two-year and four-year, to share information about practices, strategies and approaches their institutions (or specific departments or people within it) are using to promote student success.

We value the time of busy higher ed administrators and staff, so most Student Success content is to–the–point, with actionable advice, including quick tips, takeaways and inspirational stories. Following is a list of specific content needs. Opinion pieces, as well as research and survey data, are also welcome.

Have a story or advice to share? Click on any content type name with a link below (for an online submission form, which will generally be used to write the article). If you would like feedback on an idea before submitting it, or to nominate a person for a Q&A article (see below for our needs), please email melissa.ezarik@insidehighered.com .
