Industry: Education

The 16-week program ensures students have individualized resources and techniques to improve performance and career readiness.

Birmingham, AL (PRUnderground) August 25th, 2020

Digital academic coaching company Pack Education and its partners today announce the kickoff of Ignite Powered by Pack Education, a virtual academic advising pilot program providing support to students at the University of South Alabama, Bishop State Community College, and Coastal Alabama Community College. 

Pack Education, subsidiary of digital health company Pack Health, applies a digital coaching model to academic advising to increase graduation rates. The innovative initiative creates one-on-one engagement infrastructure to enhance support for students who may be at risk of drop-out. The Ignite program is funded by The Alabama Power Foundation, Ratliff Charitable Foundation, Regions Foundation, and Alabama Community College System. Mobile Area Education Fund has also been an integral component of implementation.

“While national collegiate graduation rates average around 60%, only four of 27 public and private four-year institutions in Alabama meet or exceed this average,” says M’Kayl Lewis, Vice President of Member Services at Pack Education. “The extra support will be instrumental for Alabama students, particularly at a time when they’re learning to navigate a new version of college life created by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Students will be paired with an Ignite Academic Coach and complete the 16-week program during the Fall 2020 semester. Coaches provide an average of 40 quarterly touchpoints via texts, emails, phone calls, and social media to provide focus, encouragement, and accountability.  This structure provides an additional layer of support as students navigate shifting learning environments due to COVID-19.

“Sometimes students just need affirmation that they matter, someone cares about their goals, and that they are achievable,” said Alabama Community College Systems Chancellor Jimmy H. Baker. “Ignite will provide that attention through meaningful mentorship in a way that students are most familiar – their phones. This individualized, weekly engagement will help students focus on goal achievement, while identifying any roadblocks and providing solutions that will lead them to success.”

The completion of a college degree is directly correlated to building personal value, wealth, and improving economic development. There is extensive evidence that supports the impact of a post-secondary degree on improved employment outcomes and earning potential for individuals as much as 37%.

“The Ignite program has the power to reach students where they are,” said Dr. Melinda Byrd-Murphy, Dean of External Funding at Coastal Alabama Community College. “Students lead busy lives and need access to support even when they’re not sitting on a college campus. I believe this program will help us reach more students and let them know that their success is important to us.”

From time to time PTM has alarmed the authorities of the reinsurgence and regrouping of the militant groups in the Pashtun Belt. They have demanded an end to the strategic war on the Pashtun belt.

Abdullah Nangyal, PTM forefront Leader said, “the peace of in Afghanistan and Pakhtunkhwa-Pakistan is inextricably linked to each other. There can not be peace in Pakhtunkhwa without peace in Afghanistan.”

“PTM is an anti-war movement, we are demanding a truth commission to investigate the war on the Pashtun Land, to pin responsibility on those responsible for bloodshed, enforced disappearances and landmiens cultivated during this war. The Taliban have marked their return in the Pashtun belt, they are regrouping and attacking the locals. We demand peace for our land” Said Mohsin Dawar while addressing the forum.

Gulalai Ismail said that the state authorities instead of curbing terrorism is using regressive anti-terrorism, cybercrime and sedition laws to curb voices of dissent in Pakistan.

Muhammad Rasool said that the war economy of Pakistan has destroyed the lives and economy of the Pashtuns across the Durand Line, the rogue powers have be held accountable.
