St. Petersburg College Bill Law emphasizes the importance of systematically using data to improve student success rates at the college’s Moving the Needle conference Nov. 6-7.
More than 150 attendees from 26 colleges and universities attended St. Petersburg College’s inaugural Moving the Needle conference, Nov. 6-7.

The event brought together college and university leaders from across the country to discuss best practices for using data to increase student success rates.

“A big piece of the conference was about creating a culture where college officials and faculty embrace ways they can use data to help increase student achievement,” said Dr. Jesse Coraggio, associate vice president of Institutional Effectiveness, Research and Grants at SPC, in a press release.

Conference topics included: creating a responsive and “nimble” organizational culture; creating and employing data tools and dashboards; building a data-driven culture; using data to improve academic success; employing high impact practices within student support services; and employing shared governance, responsibility and transparency practices. Key events were streamed online.

SPC President Bill Law, a self-proclaimed “data guy,” opened the summit by emphasizing the importance of systematically using data to improve student success rates. He discussed the business intelligence data that SPC administrators receive each morning that allow them to monitor what is or is not working and how the college can better serve students each day.
