PelotonU VISTA Community Support Coordinator
 
 
 
Nationwide, 45 million Americans have enrolled college and had to stop out because college wasn’t built for today’s student; the Wall Street Journal reports that over 70% of students are now post-traditional, which means they’re either older than 24, commuting to school, attending part-time, or taking care of a child. Their complex lives don’t fit within the fixed structure of traditional higher ed. That’s where we come in. PelotonU developed three programs to support working adults: our flagship college completion program, our advising program for post-traditional students in Austin, and our innovation program to ensure we continue learning and export those lessons across the country. College Completion we blend the best of online education with the best of in-person support to give our students a 5x chance of graduating. We partner with quality, project-based, affordable online degree programs, and then layer two key components of the traditional experience on top. First, we create community through study spaces that are open nights and weekends, so students have a sacred space to focus on school without the demands of home or work. Second, we pair every student with a full-time, expert coach who meets with them weekly to provide personalized, face-to-face guidance around the obstacles to their degree. Our advising program has three goals: ensure Austin students have access to personalized advice about their best post-secondary options; support community organizations through training in best-practices and analysis of education trends from their alumni; and connecting students with PelotonU when we are the best match. Innovation in 2019, we will formally launch our Innovation Lab. We will design, conduct, and evaluate programmatic experiments that enable us to continue learning new ways to better serve our community. Second, the Lab will export its learnings to entrepreneurs and educators across the country who are interested in launching program.
