Switchboard offers powerful software and strategy based on a simple idea: forward-thinking campuses facilitate success by connecting their community.


We make it simple for students, alumni, and your broader community to connect. They ASK for they help they need or make an OFFER they help they wish to give.


We track the outcomes of these connections and automatically share powerful data and qualitative success stories.


Save time and effort by meeting the needs of your community online, and measure ROI for both your community and your institution.


We coach you every step of the way to help you optimize your engagement and maximize ROI.
