About Us

Campus Connector’s mission is to drive college and university student success and engagement. Our vision is an environment where students and colleges and universities are totally connected making both the students and colleges as effective as possible.

Campus Connectr™ is the industry-leading software product of Campus Connector Inc. Historically, in late 2015, Campus Connector Inc. acquired the assets of UMatch, Inc. UMatch, Inc., from its South Carolina base, had worked to develop higher education retention tools then known as uAchieve and uFit.  uMatch had Proof of Concept performed, with statistical measures, showing the validity of the uAchieve and uFit measurements; these measurements are now incorporated into Campus Connectr. Campus Connectr is a result of over six years of research and development. 

Campus Connectr utilizes proactive digital engagement to drive student retention and student success through social and academic engagement, student organization and activity engagement, psychological analysis, institutional fit evaluation, and background variable analysis. Campus Connectr can be deployed at any point throughout the student lifecycle – from a prospective student, through the application, acceptance, enrollment, and attendance.
