About Nearpeer

With Nearpeer, students feel like they belong, which improves their commitment to college and sense of belonging. Eduventures Research (a top education research firm) recognized Nearpeer as “Top 5” edtech company to watch, and the Christensen Institute (a leading think tank focused on disruptive innovation) said, “Nearpeer has demonstrated an ability to help colleges boost the rates at which students commit to attending, show up at the beginning of the year, and persist after their first year in college…with the biggest gains among first-generation students, low-income students, students of color, and those far from campus, such as out-of-state students and rural students.”

Students using Nearpeer feel a sense of belonging and peer support that promotes their success, including for underserved students and more introverted students. Our platform includes student mobile apps and a peer network with machine learning that fosters healthy engagement between students based on shared context, background, interests, and classes.
