Coursedog provides higher ed with modern technology solutions – empowering institutions, students, and communities across the globe. We believe higher education is the world's greatest engine for opportunity.
Coursedog's founding story is rooted in the desire to help students achieve their highest goals. In 2018, Coursedog's co-founders and then college students, Justin Wenig and Nick Diao, were frustrated by how difficult it was to get into the classes they needed to graduate on time. After speaking with higher education provosts and registrars to better understand how academic scheduling works, they came away with a vision that permeates the company today.
Nationally, only 37 percent of students enrolled in higher education institutions will complete their degrees. This number is even lower for Black (23 percent), Latinx (24 percent), and low-income learners (26 percent). Institutions have inadvertently created barriers to completion: unclear degree pathways, misalignment of academic schedules with student demand, and creating time conflicts in their academic schedules. Our research shows that university administrators are spending 60% of their time on manual, oftentimes duplicative, data entry and very few have the right data for decision-making.
And we believe that higher education’s value will become stronger than ever with modern software. Coursedog is an integrated academic operations platform which helps higher ed maximize operational efficiency, innovate with data and accelerate student success. Today, we partner with over 120 institutions to provide Integrated Academic Scheduling, Curriculum Planning, Catalog Management, Student Success Analytics, accelerating pathways to on-time graduation for over 1 million students worldwide.
