Creating a Healthy Analytics Culture on Campus
In higher education, new ideas have the potential to take off quickly. With a plethora of publications, Listservs, and professional networks, good concepts can spread from institution to institution in a matter of hours. Ideas like microlearning, competency-based assessment, student-centered learning, and immersive experiences began, at some point in time, on one campus or in the mind of one individual.
Using Data to Inform Enrollment Management Part 2
Enrollment managers play a critical role on every campus. While the outside world may focus much of its energy on faculty effectiveness, graduation rates, and career placement, a campus can’t survive without the ability to enroll or retain students. Especially in today’s era of lowered budget allocations and tuition discounting, the pressure is on to continually meet numbers. If a student leaves, he or she must be replaced. For enrollment managers, the goal is simple: use data to admit studen...
Five Key Concepts for Leveraging the Expanded Data Layer
By tapping into the campus-wide data layer, colleges and universities can uncover new information to strengthen institutional effectiveness. Here are five key concepts to guide a new approach centered on data-informed decision making:
Changing Your Relationship with Data: New Opportunities for Institutional Effectiveness
This white paper explores the value of the expanded data layer on campus. By leveraging their data ecosystem, colleges and universities can uncover new information to strengthen their institutional effectiveness.
The Untapped Data Ecosystem: Using Analytics and Insight to Improve Student Success
Student success is a campus-wide, multifaceted effort. Programs and interventions are put in place across campuses each year to support students on their path toward graduation. But how do you know if your efforts are working?
Introducing Campus Intelligence
The team at Campus Labs is excited to unveil an online learning space we’ve been envisioning for quite for some time – Campus Intelligence. Having partnered with over 1,000 campuses since our founding in 2001, we’ve had the opportunity to work with leading professionals in the field. We’ve also benefited from a front-row seat to view new patterns and trends as they emerge across all areas of higher education.

Challenging Traditional Assumptions About Assessment Management
For our most recent Data in Higher Education podcast, I had the chance to sit down with my colleague, JD White, and discuss the decade-long shift in how institutions gather and use vital information for assessment management. Constituents across higher education are hungry to make use of the growing amount of data to make more informed decisions in the advancement of education. However, the existence of more data has not translated into more meaningful insights or advanced analytics.
Beyond Assessment Management: Shifting your focus to progress, not process
As pressure for institutions to make data-informed decisions increases, it’s no longer enough just to manage the assessment process—the stakes are too high. It’s time for assessment leaders to approach assessment through a new lens, one focused on progress and not process. Listen as Casey Iannone and JD White, PhD, urge assessment leaders to go beyond managing systems and processes and consider the possibilities of an assessment platform as a powerful pathway for guiding change and action.
The Future Is Now with Data Science
In our premiere podcast, JD White, Ph.D., V.P., Product Development and a self-proclaimed data geek, talks with Data Scientist Steve Simpson, Ph.D., about higher ed’s “data moment.” A former economics professor and a new addition to the Campus Labs team, Steve explains the role of data science in his academic research as well as its power to help transform administrative efficiencies at colleges and universities.
