The Sova team supports the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in their effort to scale evidence-based student success initiatives. We provide grantee facilitation and capacity building support through the Pathways Partner Collaborative, a group of organizations committed to improving rates of college completion, transfer, and attainment of jobs with value in the labor market — and achieving equity in those outcomes. Collaborative organizations developed the guided pathways model and individually and collectively, these organizations now support guided pathways reform in higher education institutions across the country.
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.
