Data’s Role in Student and Institutional Success
The availability and use of data have reshaped virtually every sector of our economy and society. This trend came comparatively late to higher education, but it is here, and here to stay, with significant implications for students, employees, institutions and policy makers. From arming instructors and advisers with student-level data to help them target interventions to those most in need of help to equipping administrators with information about when campus networks are most used to understand student behavior better, colleges and universities are getting serious about using data to be more effective.

The webcast will explore the articles in the recently-released compilation, "Data's Role in Student and Institutional Success," which examines several vital topics, including:
• Recent ways that colleges and universities are marshaling the vast data at their disposal to bolster student and institutional success
• Potential risks and pitfalls that can arise when those data are misused
• Strategies for protecting student privacy and other efforts to ensure ethical and equitable use of technology tools that gather data
