Preparing for the Future: Removing Institutional Blind Spots

Tuesday, March 06 | 2:15PM–3:00PM ET | Orlando Ballroom M-N, Convention Level
Session Type: Breakout Session
Institutions should be thinking about analytics initiatives that centralize data from across the institution to make it accessible, understandable, and actionable. The UMass Lowell IT and IR teams will share their priorities and the decision-making process that led them to invest in an institution-wide analytics initiative. They will discuss how they merged student records data with NSC Student Tracker data to better understand student mobility and success factors and develop statistical models to help predict admissions yield. They will also discuss how the data informs strategies to increase enrollments at all levels of the university, as well as retention and graduation rates.
