A Funded Project to Close Equity Gaps: Information Session on Data

Tuesday, July 27, 2021
3–4 p.m. ET

As institutions transform to better support ALL students in progressing toward a credentialled outcome, they will need access to better data to make informed decisions and assess the impacts of their reforms.

In this webinar for institutions interested in joining AASCU’s  Transformation Accelerator Cohort, we will share insights about how leading and lagging key performance indicators (KPIs) collected via the  Postsecondary Data Partnership (PDP) can be leveraged to: 

  • Improve student success strategies
  • Identify equity gaps
  • Offer opportunities for benchmarking

Institutions will also learn how to participate in the PDP's nationwide effort to provide a fuller picture on student progress and gain actionable strategies.
