 The Summit's preconference sessions have reached full capacity and are officially sold out! 

Register today for the Data & Analytics Summit virtual pre-conference on September 18.

The ninth annual Data & Analytics Summit from Achieving the Dream will bring together hundreds of higher education professionals and national experts who are using data to transform their communities.

The 2023 Data & Analytics Summit includes one half day of virtual pre-conference workshops and three days of in-person learning.

Monday, September 18: Virtual pre-conference workshops
Wednesday–Friday, September 20-22: In-person sessions and collaborative peer learning

 Sessions at the Data & Analytics Summit will address  how the strategic use of data can advance community colleges as equitable hubs of learning, credentialing, and mobility. Session topics will center on three themes:

  • Expanding postsecondary access to historically disconnected populations
  • Increasing social and economic mobility for students, their families, and their communities
  • Centering equity
