SA360 will help us further buttress our current Lifeskills programming by educating and equipping our student-athletes with the necessary knowledge, skills, and competencies during and after college.

Evolution Labs announced today that Louisiana State University Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes has chosen the company’s SA360 platform to help improve student-athlete success. SA360 provides student-athletes with engaging, “self-service” content as well as tools and resources designed to help them succeed academically, athletically and personally. The program also provides athletic advisors and coaches with a platform that can help them be more responsive and supportive throughout the sports season and academic year.

“The Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes is excited to partner with Evolution Labs,” said, Kenneth O. Miles, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs at LSU. “SA360 will help us further buttress our current Lifeskills programming by educating and equipping our student-athletes with the necessary knowledge, skills, and competencies during and after college. It behooves us to instill and teach as much critical and relevant information as we possibly can during student-athletes’ tenure so that they can become responsible citizens and great ambassadors of the institution. The myriad of topics offered by Evolution Labs will allow us to utilize technology and address hot topics in a meaningful way at our student-athletes' convenience.”

SA360 covers important success topics, such as health and wellness, study skills, risk behavior, NCAA compliance and career exploration. It utilizes pulse surveys, social media, self-tests and heuristics, digital video and other web and mobile-based tools that keep students returning for fresh content. The university plans to debut the program to all of its athletes during the 2015-2016 academic year.

“As a flagship public state university with a national reputation for both athletics and academics, LSU understands that student-athletes need continual support both on and off the field`,” said Peter Kraft, Co-founder at Evolution Labs. “SA360 is the perfect fit for an institution which recognizes that today’s student-athletes consume information much differently than did their predecessors. The platform is designed foremost to engage students in content that we know increases their chances of success by leveraging the formats that Millennials expect.”
