In Their Words
Sova helped us better understand and face head-on some of the deeper challenges facing our efforts to scale remediation reform. Not only did I value their insights with respect to faculty engagement, but I also benefited from having them on hand as safe-space sounding boards and thought partners.

Working with Sova ensures results. Having been a part of a large partnership that Sova facilitated, they created agendas that led to meeting objectives, facilitated dialogues that led to intended outcomes and when necessary, entered vague, and murky circumstances, to bring clarity. They did all of this so well, that the Center for Community College Student Engagement hired them to help work with us, as well.

Sova has worked side-by-side with us to strengthen our college’s culture of student success in ways that we could not have done on our own.
