This grant will support a partnership between the California State University, Northridge (CSUN) and the University of Pittsburgh to implement and evaluate the use of AdmitHub’s chatbot to improve college persistence and academic achievement and reduce equity gaps. Originally piloted at Georgia State University to improve first-year matriculation rates, AdmitHub’s chatbot at CSUN will use artificial intelligence to answer students’ questions and provide reminders and nudges to 5,500 CSUN first-year students to stay on-track for continued enrollment and success.
