In 2020, Harrington joined Docking at Adrian as a Special Assistant to the President for Innovation to incubate a new business model that could transform the financial future of both small private colleges and their students through intelligent collaboration. The College of the Future tells the story of Rize's unique founding at Adrian and lays out how small colleges can both increase enrollment and lower tuition by starting high-demand majors and minors powered by Rize's program development platform.
"Upon arriving at Adrian, our vision was to help colleges like Adrian more quickly and sustainably offer their students in-demand skills that would lead to fulfilling and financially-rewarding careers," said Harrington. "By focusing on better preparing students for future careers, we created a blueprint for small private colleges to grow enrollment, and even lower tuition, by launching high-demand degrees like Cybersecurity, Supply Chain Management, and Digital Marketing."
Rize Education, founded by Harrington and Connor McCarthy, is one of the first education platforms to truly partner with small private colleges from the inside with the shared goal of providing students with an affordable and effective path to academic success. Rize's innovative course-sharing model has been built in close collaboration with the over 125 member institutions of the Lower Cost Models Consortium (LCMC).
As the underlying technology platform, Rize Education allows LCMC members to access high-demand majors, minors, and certificates that are built in collaboration with top industry and academic experts and taught by other LCMC institutions. LCMC members have already started 250+ programs leveraging this unique online course-sharing model.
Incubated at Adrian and co-created with members of the LCMC, Rize Education offers a bright future for both students and higher education leaders.
