Eliminating Achievement Gaps Through Data and Analytics

By implementing a series of student-centered and analytics-informed programs, Georgia State University in Atlanta has raised graduation rates by 22 percentage points and closed all achievement gaps based on race, ethnicity, income-level and first-generation status. It now awards more bachelor’s degrees to African Americans than any other college or university in the nation.

Tim Renick, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Success, Vice Provost, and Professor of Religious Studies at Georgia State University, will describe how Georgia State achieved this notable success.

Through a discussion of innovations ranging from chatbots and predictive analytics to meta-majors and completion grants, the session will cover lessons learned from Georgia State’s transformation and outline several practical steps that campuses can take to improve outcomes for underserved students.

A reception will follow for continued discussion.
