Celebrating 100 Campus Partners

As of this week, we’ve achieved a major milestone: 100 campus partners!

Our team is filled with former practitioners, whether that be as student affairs professionals or as student leaders, with a strong passion for seeing the ability to make a large impact with tech. We knew that leaving the student affairs field to build a new software solution to help professionals be more successful meant doing things differently.

At Presence, we like to think we do things differently.

We ask questions like: why do we do certain things a particular way? Not just because it’s been done in the past; it’s important to create meaning behind everything we do. Asking ‘why’ is fundamental of our process, and the only way to keep propelling the student affairs and education technology industry forward. Our focus has been solving real problems in thoughtful ways, and today we’re excited to share that 100 campus partners believe in and find success daily in our shared philosophy.

With fear of sounding cliche, I’d say it’s been a rollercoaster of a journey so far, but typically you can see the next dip or hill coming your way on a rollercoaster. In a startup, you never truly know what’s around the bend. We’ve made plenty of mistakes and thankfully have had a lot of success come from those.

Our team, investors, partners, and community have helped us accomplish amazing things. We’ve found ourselves in the middle of helping lead an important movement with data analytics, assessment, student success, and so much more in higher education. This is a huge milestone for us as we build out our platform and continue to work alongside campus partners to help empower them to make an impact in more students’ lives and the success of their institutions.

These first 100 campus partners have helped define what Presence is and what it will be. The fact is, no matter the bumps, turns, and drops, the stories and successes we see from these partners are the most rewarding and the exact reason we started on this ride.

Thank you to so many of you who have supported us in our adventure so far, we’re excited to continue working with and learning from you!
