The Nuro Learning team is dedicated to supporting student success by making data actionable. The Nuro Retention solution works to network institutional data and inform stakeholder strategies to provide the most positive impact on student outcomes. Nuro and their partners provide software, consulting, and best-practice institutional training that directly impact student success, retention and completion. Nuro Learning is based in Chicago, IL
Nuro Retention begins working with schools to integrate high impact practices into the daily workflow of advising and tutoring departments.
As we gathered data from the field, we built a ‘framework for success’ to execute and track student success and retention initiatives
Following major investments from Mark Cuban and USA Funds, we began work on a comprehensive integrated software solution for case management and student success.
We launched our SaaS platform with early adopters San José State University and Linn Benton Community College.
Nuro Retention provides the most comprehensive package of strategies and solutions to support our partners in achieving their institutional goals
Everyday we work to help colleges and universities increase student success and improve retention. Our team members come from diverse professional and academic backgrounds and spend their time on campuses, with university administrators, and in labs crunching data to better understand why and how students become at risk, so we can provide opportunities to help each and every student stay on course towards graduation.
The son of a fisherman, Tom grew up on a Gaelic-speaking island off the west coast of Ireland. He describes his childhood as a cross between Little House on the Prairie and the Deadliest Catch. He is a very proud Irishman, so don’t ask him about it if you have to be somewhere in the next hour. He and his siblings were the first generation of his family to attend university. The opportunities he was afforded by education led him to a successful career in finance before giving it up to become a college administrator over fifteen years ago. He jumped at the chance to join the Nuro Retention team, knowing firsthand the life-changing benefits of completing university and the difficulties faced by first generation students. He is tremendously motivated to lead Nuro Retention to make a clear difference in college completion. He lives in Chicago with his wife and family, is heavily involved in the local community, and loves to coach his kids’ soccer.
