EAB's web conference description:

It can be very difficult to make progress on long-standing goals to redesign university processes. Absent credible data on the problems requiring solutions and metrics to track progress, few universities think they can make persuasive cases for change. For this reason, a growing number of institutions are investing in data and analytics as critical change-management tools. Please join us as we explore how data—both in and outside EAB's Student Success Collaborative (SSC) platform—can make a university's advising process more effective. (Note: presenter has indicated this session will also be of value to non-adviser audiences.)
