Credo & Pharos Resources Partner to Impact Student Success & Retention

Student Success Through Intelligent Partnerships

Two recognized higher education industry leaders—Credo LLC and Pharos Resources—have joined forces to deliver an even more powerful, data-driven, and culture-changing approach to improving and sustaining inclusive student success and retention outcomes. 

The partnership introduces our Success Intelligence Platform, a robust data lake solution powered by Pharos Resources’ proven technology, and is delivered throughout a five-year, revenue-share Moving The Needle partnership.

Our Success Intelligence Platform captures and hosts data from any source in your institution’s technology ecosystem which continues to grow into a student experience data lake. 

Data-Driven Decisions and Results 

Within three months of the Moving The Needle partnership, our Success Intelligence Platform is installed and ready for full utilization, empowering partners to:  

  • Run pilot programs and analytics of students and their experiences 
  • Inform and guide the best interventions to help improve that experience
  • Measure success along the way with the ability to adapt

This capability constantly evolves as Credo, Pharos, and institutions learn and grow in practice, technology, dashboards, and analytics focus. The platform gives each institution the power to surface leading and lagging indicators reflective of the student experience in real time with the ability to test, measure, adjust, and adapt every strategy we are implementing as part of Moving the Needle. 

Dr. Joretta Nelson, Founder of Moving The Needle, said this about the partnership:

"With dynamic data, our Success Intelligence Platform promotes accountability and provides meaningful measurements of engagement and successes with instant, intuitive dashboards, and the ability to run detailed analyses."
