Wisr is an online solution founded by education technology veterans to engage untapped alumni by allowing students to create and curate a personal board of career advisors.

Universities face increased pressure to demonstrate career and degree outcomes for their constituents but are operating in the communication technology dark ages when engaging students and alumni. Career Services and Alumni Relations rely on self-reporting volunteerism which results in lost engagement data and gift opportunities. Wisr engages untapped alumni by providing a digital networking space for students and alumni to create and curate their personal board of advisors. Our technology builds the front-end of the funnel for advancement offices, while solving critical communications challenges for disparate university constituents.
