9:45 AM - 11:45 AM Data Institute: Macro trends affecting Data-based Decision Making on Campuses
Presented by Jacob Mayiani, Research Analyst, James Madison University

Demand for data-informed decisions is high as institutions of higher education stretch to produce graduates while operating under limited economic resources. Currently, institutions around the country are gathering an abundance of data from multiple sources with a purpose to support institutional missions and strategic decisions. However, unless institutional data is fully integrated and barriers to data-sharing within institutions are reduced, these data will remain siloed units with less contributions to university-wide goals. Lessons learned using an approach developed by our IR office along with best practices as suggested by professional publications will be used. This session will focus on commonly reported barriers to data-based decision-making and provide participants with insights on how to get around these barriers and how to leverage available data in order to lay out a plan for improved data-sharing and reporting.

The power of analytics provide insights into student engagement and success. Companies such as Amazon and Netflix use analytics to personalize our experience and predict our needs. Our traditional approach to information in higher education has been limited to standard reports after the term has ended. This session will explore innovative practices in understanding, measuring, predicting, and improving success through analytics. Combining both academic and engagement metrics to improve decision making. We will explore innovations in turning data into actionable insights and the future of analytics in higher education.
1:45 PM - 3:15 PM Data Institute: The Emerging Discipline of Student Success Management
Presented by Ed Venit, Managing Director at EAB; Dr. Farrah Jackson Ward, Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at ECSU;
LaToya White, Senior Director at EAB

Why is the pace of progress so slow? After a decade of intense investment, national graduation rates have increased just two points, while time to degree and career placement continue to lag. Yet some institutions are improving much faster than others by adopting a managerial mindset centered on real-time process metrics – such as registrations, advising contacts, and early alerts – that roll up to their broader institutional student success goals. Based in groundbreaking EAB best practice research, this session will explore how our current approaches to tracking student success fall short, and how progressive institutions are organizing staff and operationalizing real-time data to accelerate their efforts. We posit that these practices represent the advent of a new discipline in higher education: Student Success Management. To show this discipline in action, Dr. Farrah Jackson Ward of Elizabeth City State University will join in conversation with LaToya White of EAB. When ECSU joined the Student Success Collaborative (SSC), Dr. Ward improved student support by embedding SSC utilization into their faculty advising model. With the adoption of SSC and a shift in faculty culture, ECSU saw a 6% increase in retention and a 41% increase in response rate to faculty progress reports.

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM Campfire Chat: Failing Forward; And How I Got Over
It would be unrealistic to believe that institutions that are looking to improve student outcomes on their campus do so without any hiccups. Although we tend to paint an external picture that makes it seem like everything is roses and unicorns, those in the trenches know that driving change comes with setbacks. However, there is power in learning from our failures. Join us as institutional representatives share stories of how they failed forward and learned from their setbacks to advance their efforts and the work of CPI on their campus.

Interactive data visualization facilitates the ability of institutional stakeholders to contextualize their understanding and comprehension of crucial foundational concepts, fostering an institutional data cultural shift from merely asking questions to leveraging appropriate data and insight to identify seminal underlying assumptions. A variety of measures, including academic outcomes, enrollment, discount rates, transition between majors, and peer benchmarks will be presented to allow campus users to explore data patterns and correlations to effectively data-informed decision-making.
