Case Study: Career Education Colleges and Universities

Adding value for members by keeping them in the know


The current regulatory and media climate is unfavorable for private sector colleges and universities. To track regulatory developments and news about the industry, and to boost engagement levels and encourage membership, Career Education Colleges and Universities needed a comprehensive news monitoring solution that doubled as a member benefit.


Synoptos developed a highly targeted news brief containing relevant industry and regulatory articles that is sent out daily to all CECU members. The articles are handpicked to keep members on the cutting edge of the trends that affect their bottom line.


CECU’s Vice President of Communications Noah Black called the Synoptos daily news brief its most valuable benefit, attributing it to the success of the organization. “The morning executive news summary is one of the strongest member benefits we provide,” he said. Members regularly cite the Synoptos news brief as providing the advantage they need to succeed in a highly competitive landscape.

“I consistently hear from our association’s members that the morning executive news summary is one of the strongest member benefits we provide.”
