College students can be at risk of dropping out, particularly in high-demand areas like STEM fields, where anxiety levels can be high. Providing personalized mentorship and academic resources can help students feel supported and connected, which can decrease the likelihood of dropping out and increase opportunities of success. The project explores how virtual humans can serve to personalize student support, identifying when they should intervene, what they should communicate, and who they should be.
The project enables college students to interact with a virtual human to discuss topics and resources concerning their academic and personal well-being. The project looks to design virtual humans as culturally relevant solutions to help students succeed in college. Interventions address topics concerning mental health, career development, and academic mentorship.
