Keynote: Building a Smarter Institution Using Predictive Analytics

The Keynote speech should be thought-provoking! Dr. Jim Jung, Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management at New Jersey City University will discuss how to Predictive Analytics can be utilized in Higher Education.

The use of predictive analytics in higher education has been a growing trend over the past decade. Institutions collect a wealth of information over a student’s lifecycle which can include, high school transcripts, financial data, demographic variables, course taking patterns, as well as behavioral data on extracurricular activities, surveys, and text messages. This information is analyzed to provide insights on how to recruit more students, improve student success outcomes, and develop more efficient processes. This keynote will provide case studies where predictive analytics was used to guide policy decisions that impacted institutional and student outcomes. Tips and ideas on how admissions and registrar staff can use data to influence campus-wide decisions will be discussed.

We're so excited for the upcoming NJNYACRAO conference this Friday the 26th. If you haven't already please join us for the day and meet and discuss today's trending topics for the Registrar and Admission offices; and get to know your regional Colleagues.
