Anthology, a leading provider of higher education solutions that support the entire learner lifecycle, and Navengage, an education technology pioneer in student engagement mobile technology, recently announced a new partnership that aims to bring Anthology Engage, a dynamic student community engagement platform, together with Navengage’s versatile student engagement mobile app.
According to an official statement, the integrated solution will enable students to tap Anthology’s time-tested student engagement platform from any device, innovating upon an already market-leading solution with even more flexibility. The application amplifies the impact of student affairs, gathers quality data institutions need to demonstrate the effect of student engagement on student success, and empowers staff to spend their time where it is most valuable – with students.
Commenting on the partnership, Vice President, Product Management of Anthology, Chris Husser, said:
We’re excited to work with Navengage to deploy Anthology Engage’s best-in-class engagement management platform in a practical, mobile-first experience that students expect. This is another significant step along our journey to deliver personalized experiences that drive student and institutional success across the student lifecycle.
Through native integration, campus leaders can meet students where they are – on their mobile devices. Key features of the integrated solution include:
Easy-to-use tools to efficiently and effectively encourage student engagement through mobile access to events, organizations, academics, career preparation, student research, and studying abroad
A complete picture of students’ co-curricular involvement with more comprehensive student activity analytics to make data-informed decisions
A personalized, accessible user experience with a modern user interface and campus branding
The ability to integrate student goal setting with expanded access to opportunities and communities that are important to each student
A centralized location for student and academic affairs to unite around their common goal – the success of the student
Co-founder & CEO of Navengage, Andrew Strause, added:
Through this partnership, we look forward to providing higher ed institutions with the best of both worlds – a combination of Anthology’s expertise in compliance, reporting, and student services with Navengage’s mobile accessibility and cutting-edge user experience. Together, our platforms can transform the student experience and further our commitment to helping students succeed outside the classroom, especially those at risk of dropping out.
Strause further said:
Educators have long sought to work across institutional silos and deliver a more holistic student experience. Students similarly crave a personal and well-rounded experience. The Anthology and Navengage partnership will bring those experiences to fruition by providing institutions with robust engagement data across campus and serving as the epicentre for student engagement.

The company has supported over 150 million users in 80 countries. The platform works to help create experiences that are more informed and personalized to support learning, teaching, and leading more effectively. The startup does this through its combined product and solution offerings that span the entire learning journey.
Navengage delivers leading-edge, mobile-first student engagement software that helps higher education institutions increase student engagement and retention. The company aims to advance student engagement technology so that colleges and universities have comprehensive, accurate, and readily available data for decision-making.
