SEMINOLE – St. Petersburg College, nationally recognized for its use of data-driven strategies to increase student achievement, will host the fourth annual Moving the Needle Conference on Nov. 8-9 at the college’s Seminole campus, 9200 113th St.

The two-day event is from 7 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. on Nov. 8 with an evening reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m.; and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 9.

The focus of this year’s conference is “the art of student engagement in today’s data-driven culture,” which homes in on the need to meet the unprecedented demand for accountability and student success. This focus has shifted decision-making in higher education, which has become predicated upon access to and use of “real time” data and information.

Conference proposals and early registration ends Aug. 31. To submit a proposal or register, visit movin­gthen­eedle­confe­rence­.com.

“This year’s conference focuses on clarifying and defining the academic pathway for our students,” said Dr. Patrick Rinard, SPC’s interim senior vice president for student services. “Through the use of data and innovative approaches, student service professionals and faculty can effectively support students towards success and pathway completion.”

Conference topics include:

• Clarifying Path to Student’s Goal

• Helping Student Choose and Enter a Pathway

• Keeping Students on a Pathway

• Ensuring Students are Learning

The conference keynote speakers include:

• Dr. Michael Baston, president of Rockland Community College

• Madeline M. Pumariega, chancellor of Florida College System

• Dr. Sanford Shugart, president of Valencia College

• Dr. Evelyn Waiwaiole, director of the Center for Community College Student Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin
