Innovation and the Last Mile of Student Success

Tuesday, October 15 | 3:15PM–4:00PM CT | W375b, Level 3
Session Type: Featured Session
Delivery Format: Featured Session
Many institutions' student success initiatives are moving beyond the low-hanging fruit to address the diverse facets of helping learners achieve their individual postsecondary goals. Innovation is needed. Data and analytics can fuel innovation, but bring challenges of their own: integrations, governance, algorithmic bias, and the difficulty of measuring complexities such as food insecurity and mental health. Today's panel of higher education and industry leaders will offer advice and inspiration for institutions to prepare for the last mile of student success.

This session has been designated as part of the Diana G. Oblinger Forum this year. This series of non-exclusive sessions requires no additional registration or fees.
