We are excited to announce that Wendy Colby, Vice President and Associate Provost for Boston University Virtual, and Ranjan Daniels, Senior Associate Dean of Student Recruitment and Global Outreach for the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, have joined Noodle’s Strategic Advisory Board.
Formed in March 2022, our Strategic Advisory Board is made up of higher education leaders who help shape and guide Noodle’s strategic initiatives and advise how Noodle can best serve our university and employer partners.
Wendy brings more than 25 years of leadership and expertise in online and hybrid program creation and development, working closely with major institutions across higher education to lead, design, implement, support, and scale high-quality degree and certificate offerings.
“I am pleased to join a community of individuals committed to advancing the important work of transformation in higher education,” said Wendy. “We need to invest in creative dialogue and conversations across broad constituent groups. There is great value in bringing together entrepreneurs, educators, administrators, technologists and business leaders. I look forward to continuing to advocate for students and faculty – to accelerate the power of education to transform lives and communities in a rapidly changing world.”
Ranjan has twenty years of experience building relationships and products, opening new markets, and driving innovation at the University of Chicago, Kaplan, Berkshire Hathaway, the Tribune Company, and the City of Chicago.
“I joined the Noodle Advisory Board to connect with cutting-edge peer university leaders to help sharpen my work reducing the acquisition costs for high-quality students which will advance new models for learning around the world. I hope to better understand trends in digital marketing and data-driven strategies to boost yield and student outcomes. I have a passion for recruiting and nurturing under-represented students and hope to advance best practices in this effort with Noodle and its partners,” said Ranjan.
Wendy and Ranjan join our Advisory Board at an exciting time for Noodle, as we expand our offerings in three key areas:
- Even more flexible services offering and campus-wide pricing strategies;
- Expansion and development of our University to Employer (“U2E”) model and network;
- Continued growth and acceleration of the Noodle Learning Platform (“NLP”)
We are thrilled to have Wendy and Ranjan on board, adding their valuable perspectives and expertise as we navigate these areas of growth and continue to support our university and employer partners.
