Upwing combines student support, through mentoring and data science counseling to help universities retain more students.

As higher education has been transformed into digital transition and has been able to be taught remotely, levels of student support have declined dramatically. The traditional habits of meeting up with a teacher or advisor on campus are no longer practical for students who are trained remotely. Upswing helps universities link students with student support resources such as counseling, tutoring and office hours to create a more attractive online environment. In addition, tutors can access information about student performance provided by the platform and detect, through indicators, whether there may be a problem.

This organization's team is composed of experts focused on helping universities to improve student retention and success. Its objective is to extend its social mission to more than 70 colleges and universities in the United States and Canada and to start an international career.
