All colleges and universities can harness the power of analytics to help navigate challenges and take advantage of opportunities. The integration of analytics, one of NACUBO’s strategic priorities, cannot be achieved in a silo; it requires a collaborative approach. NACUBO has partnered with the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) and EDUCAUSE on an initiative encouraging institutions to prioritize analytics and promote cross-institutional collaboration to propel their efforts. Representatives from all three associations will share the guiding principles on the use of analytics in higher education that stem from this initiative.

Learning Objectives

  • Realize the value of analytics in supporting strategic thinking and decision making
  • Understand the importance of a cross-institutional approach to analytics
  • Use the principles outlined by AIR, EDUCAUSE, and NACUBO to develop an action plan for your own institution
