Why Polis?

Unite human advising with smart technology to boost engagement

Student attrition is a hidden and huge problem in higher education. It is a financial and existential problem for universities.

Decades of research has shown that personalized, systematic 1:1 advising is the most effective antidote to student attrition. Yet, there are still barriers in terms of access, costs, and personalization that disengage learners and advisors.

Polis unites human advising with smart technology to help you unleash great engagement and retention at your institution.
