Utica Athletics Renews Partnership with Game Plan

Utica University has renewed its partnership with Game Plan to continue to enhance the student-athlete experience and best prepare and develop Utica athletes for their life on and off the playing field.

Utica Athletics utilizes Game Plan Analytics, which provides benchmarked survey capabilities to measure efficacy and student-athlete satisfaction across all aspects of their department. They gain valuable insight into the student-athlete experience in real-time by providing their students a direct way to share feedback and insight on what they need to succeed. Through the easy-to-navigate survey offerings on the platform, Utica has been able to effectively give their athletes a voice as well as compile valuable feedback for their coaches, staff, and specific campus departments.

“It’s a great assessment tool that allows us to help our coaches grow and be even more successful through productive student-athlete feedback. It’s also extremely easy for our student-athletes to use, which has been critical for driving high response rates. We have been able to disaggregate data to drill down to areas where we have needed to make improvements. We have also been able to look at our strengths and successes and duplicate those efforts.”
Director of Athletics at Utica University, David Fontaine

The survey offerings on Game Plan have allowed Utica Athletics to gather information from their student-athletes and deliver it in a way that facilitates positive departmental growth and improvement. In addition, they have shared relevant data with the larger institution in an effort to strengthen and improve different areas within campus that were identified by the athletes as crucial to their success at Utica.

Speaking on the partnership with Utica, Ted White, Vice President of Collegiate Partnerships at Game Plan stated, “Utica is truly a model organization when it comes to engaging student-athletes in evaluating and improving their collective experience. Dave and his staff use the data to drive action-oriented conversations across their campus each year, which, in turn, encourages their student-athletes to provide accurate and timely feedback because they know they’re being heard. We couldn’t be happier to be a partner in these efforts.”
