The Study & Implementation of Student Success Strategies

March 22, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Presented by: Kristen A. Renn, professor of Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education and associate dean of undergraduate studies for student success research, Michigan State University

Like other large public institutions, Michigan State University is attempting to increase student success, defined most often as persistence to degree, and close opportunity gaps for low-income and racially minoritized students. Since 2013, MSU has engaged in an iterative process of data analysis and implementation of initiatives to address enduring obstacles for students.

In this talk, Renn will use examples drawn from MSU’s ongoing work, including student data analytics and an innovative visual study of campus climate, to demonstrate how institutions can use data to improve student experiences and, ultimately, persistence to graduation.
