Join us for an informal opportunity to meet and mingle with EDUCAUSE staff and colleagues who are interested in data-driven decision making. Stop by for a coffee and learn how EDUCAUSE data, research, and analytics programs, including the Core Data Service, ECAR Research, and benchmarking services, can inform your decision making. There will also be a short demonstration of the Core Data Service and our ETRAC Portal, which gives you access to research on student and faculty IT needs.
