Thank you to all who attended the 15th Annual Student Life Research Symposium: Utilizing Data to Advance Our Goals. We were fortunate to welcome our Eric Dey Memorial Keynote Speaker, Dr. Deborah Santiago, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President for Policy at Excelencia in Education, who has led research and policy efforts from the community to national and federal levels to improve educational opportunities and student success for more than 20 years.
Dr. Deborah Santiago co-founded Excelencia in Education to inform policy and practice, compel action, and collaborate with those committed and ready to act to increase student success. Her current work focuses on federal and state policy, financial aid, Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and effective institutional practices for student success in higher education.
The Symposium focused on recognizing how data may be utilized to achieve goals. The Symposium also featured breakout sessions, a glimpse into the preliminary results of the Student Learning Outcomes data collected during the 2018 academic year, Tools of the Trade sessions, as well as presentations on how people have put data to work.
