With an antiquated data infrastructure and a decentralized and siloed approach to data governance, Ohio University had a goal of making their data a strategic asset – including accelerating their existing analytics capability and cultivating a data-informed culture. While they had lots of data, actionable information and self-serve analytics were minimal at best. Supporting data-informed decision making was critical as the university was implementing new student success initiatives, responding to enrollment challenges, and moving through a new strategic planning process.
In this webcast, Loralyn Taylor, Ph.D., Associate Provost for Institutional Research and Effectiveness at Ohio University, will share how they embarked on this analytics journey, including the decision process, generating institutional buy-in, the importance of data governance, and promoting data literacy. She’ll share lessons learned, as well as a change management framework which could be adapted to any institution who wants to pursue their own analytics initiative.
