Building Innovation Community and Exploring System Change
Here’s how Benjamin Fresquez, Program Manager, Aspen Institute College Excellence Program, described the results Fluid Hive helped create.
“At the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program, we tackle complex problems that require innovative solutions to significantly improve student learning, completion, and employment after college. Specifically, we approached Fluid Hive as a partner to design a workshop in which admissions leaders from highly selective four-year institutions and community colleges explored how we build a national pipeline for community college transfer students to these top colleges and universities.
With Dawan’s expertise, we successfully planned and hosted our design sprint in October 2019, and most importantly, we had a blueprint for how we could pilot this new initiative.
We took that blueprint, and in 2021, launched the Transfer Scholars Network where 200 high-achieving community college students have now made early connections to admissions representatives at twelve of the best private four-year colleges and universities. It’s hard for me to think of anyone better than Dawan and the team at Fluid Hive who could have helped us realize our vision. Not only were the services provided top-notch, but the thought partnership offered by Dawan brought even more value to our efforts.”
