“What this company is doing is truly visionary,” stated Santiago Subotovsky, principal with Emergence Capital Partners. “Civitas Learning is building technology that will dramatically improve success rates for both students and institutions.”
In the video announcement, Thornburgh said the funding brings the company one step closer to their goal of helping change student outcomes. With the money, Civitas Learning plans to double its number of employees over the next year and expand to more institutions and students.
The platform is used at Austin Community College, University of Central Florida, DeVry University, University of Maryland University College, Strayer University and Valencia College.
“The funding we just raised is not a goal in and of itself,” Thornburgh said. “We haven’t won yet. We’ll know that we’ve won, that we accomplished this goal we set out to accomplish, when we are impacting student outcomes for millions of students across higher education.”
