Ad Astra is pleased to offer three webinar series. Each series is designed to address a specific audience with content that is applicable, interesting and of importance to that group. They are as follows:
- Astra Academy – A webinar series designed for stakeholders to convey how they are helping institutions of higher education improve their retention, reduce time-to-completion, and boost graduation rates.
- Astra Share – Two month series on one topic. Designed for clients and those wanting to learn more about Ad Astra – Held on the fourth Tuesday each month (dates subject to change)
