2018 Data & Analytics Summit: Mind the Data Gap

Register today for the 2018 Data & Analytics Summit, to be held September 5-7, 2018 in College Park, MD.

The fourth annual Summit will bring together more than 250 higher education professionals with an interest in discovering how to close data gaps and advancing the student success agenda. Learn to leverage data to propel transformative change by telling effective stories with data, surfacing insights from qualitative data and using results from Achieving the Dream’s Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT) to support accreditation.

Nationally-recognized speakers will discuss emerging topics such as creating a data science pathway that takes students from certificates through a bachelor’s degree and the potential for data to make inequality worse – and what to do about it.

The event is geared toward institutional researchers, IT professionals, administrators, faculty, and staff as well as members of colleges’ student success and data teams at two- and four-year institutions. Attendees will leave with practical solutions to closing data gaps and building institutional capacity to use data to improve student outcomes.
