Enhancing Residence Life Practice and the Student Experience
Roompact and Skyfactor Benchworks are pleased to announce a strategic collaboration to explore how combining Benchworks’ nationally-validated assessment, analytics and benchmarking with Roompact’s expertise in residential education and curricular software can help campuses gain deeper insights on their operations and students to empower continuous improvement.
Formerly known as EBI, Benchworks is a Macmillan Learning company that provides more than thirty student affairs assessments mapped to accreditation and professional standards: including Resident and Student Staff surveys that provide insights for departments of housing and residence life to improve their overall practice. Benchworks also offers a New Student Survey that helps identify student retention risk factors and provides opportunities for staff support and intervention.
Roompact, a residence life and education software and services company, provides departments of housing and residence life with a variety of tools to aid staff members in improving their efficiency, and in tracking and assessing programs, services, and interventions with students throughout the academic year. In addition to helping with operations, Roompact has a special emphasis and unique tools to aid in student learning, assessment, and residential curriculum development.
In the coming weeks researchers from Roompact and Benchworks will be conducting interviews and focus groups to gather feedback on the types of collaboration that may most benefit residence life professionals.
