Uversity, the leading way for colleges and universities to engage best-fit students while gaining real-time insights about their likelihood to enroll, today announced the appointment of Scott Lomas as the company’s Vice President of Enrollment Services. With deep higher education experience, Scott will oversee Uversity’s new strategic initiative to help higher education institutions make data driven decisions earlier in the enrollment cycle by providing predictive enrollment analytics that are based on real-time student behavior.
“We’ve built a revolutionary student engagement platform, that helps to connect students with the right people and information to help them succeed in college.

Since launching Schools App in 2010, Uversity has grown from being solely a Facebook application to a robust student engagement platform that provides universities unique predictive insights into a prospective student’s likelihood to enroll, while allowing them to effectively target and communicate with their students. Today a majority of students access Schools App through the iPhone, Android and mobile web versions.
“This is a great time to join Uversity,” said Scott Lomas, Vice President of Enrollment Services. “We have a great team, cutting edge products and services, and an impressive list of partners. As enrollment management professionals evaluate the tools available in enrollment analytics I think Uversity will be the go-to company for predictive analytics. More importantly, the student engagement platform also improves the student experience.”
