The Rize team just said our goodbyes after a successful holiday party filled with wacky competitions and a dash of productive collaboration (check out a picture of our growing team at the end).
As we reflected together on the year, maybe the cozy sweaters & hot chocolate contributed to the buoyant mood, but it seemed beyond a doubt that 2023 was the best year in our history.
Our growth mindset will never change - we have signed up for an ambitious 2024 roadmap that will make us better partners to you and your students. Nonetheless, we thought you might want to join us in some cheerful reflection.
If you want to go deeper, please register for our Year in Review webinar in January! With so much to cover, we will share a Part 2 newsletter in January that will focus on Student Experience!
Growth in Programs, Students & Impact
During 2023, there was significant growth in Rize programs and course registrations.
The menu of Rize programs expanded in 2023 with several notable additions:
Looking ahead, we are also researching potential Fall 2025 launches.
Now I get to brag about my amazing colleagues. How did we achieve the results above? We added incredible talent across all verticals, including the launch of our Partner Success team and the significant expansion of Instructional Design.
Instructional Design: The instructional design team grew at Rize, allowing us to continue ensuring curriculum and curriculum design delivered to students is top quality. Meet Alyssa, Laura, Matthew, William and Greg!
