Data for Advising Symposium

Building on Complete College America’s Guided Pathways to Success and the Lumina Foundation’s Beyond Financial Aid, this workshop explored strategies for advisors, institutional researchers and others on campus to collect and analyze data to strengthen advising practices. This workshop provided institutional examples of data collection and analysis, effective approaches to establishing relationships between advisors and institutional researchers, as well as practical ways to inform decision making. Following the presentation of these examples, presenters lead sessions to discuss implementation in more detail with institutional teams. 

Materials from the Symposium, including reports and documentation of the use of data on campus, process examples of advising, and research on student behavior derived from institutional data are available.
