Our Founder, Dr. E. Faith Ivery, had experience working as
an academic advisor for adult students for several campuses.
She found that college representatives knew only about their own
campus, and, of course, "sold" only the programs that their school
offered. But, to make proper selection of the myriad of
options and opportunities that higher education developed for adult
learners, the learners needed to be taught about higher education
systems and directed to find the best-fit providers for their
goals. She decided to create services that focused on the
learner - not the recruiting goals of schools.
Knowing that schools did not want to assess and direct potential
students to their competitors, Dr. Ivery started the first
Educational Planning service for employees of companies
offering Tuition Assistance funds for continued education. She
employed academic advisors and trained them to her model to use
any, and all resources to advise adults on the most quality and
time/cost efficient means to complete their degree. The
education plans also included ways for students to earn credit
for the "college knowledge" that they already possessed - which
significantly reduces the time and cost to complete degrees.
Through the years, the model has remained the same, but the way
it is delivered has changed with technology. Now, this model
is provided through an entire web-solution, so adults can create
their own education plans tailored to their needs.
The EduPlanner's OnLine Advisor takes adults
through a process to define their learning needs, inform them about
higher education options, and directs them to the providers who
offer the solutions they need.
Through the EduPlanner and College Search, employees - the adult
students - can make informed and professional decisions about using
employer Tuition Assistance funds. This way, employees are
not "sold into" a degree by school advertisements or recruiting,
but are able to use a central resource of information to make their
