On Tuesday, June 15, 2021, at 3:00 pm EDT, we will be hosting Chris Spohn, Executive Vice President of Operations of Zovio for a fireside chat on the company’s University Partners Group. The event is open to all.

The University Partners Group provides university clients with Zovio’s proprietary enterprise education technology and services ranging from student acquisition and retention, and course development and management. All of the Group’s solutions are powered by Signalz, the company’s predictive analytics platform that provides data-driven insights designed to optimize performance metrics from marketing to student retention. The Group’s main client is the University of Arizona Global Campus, although it is actively marketing its services to other universities and recently signed its first contract outside of UAGC.
