Building Institutional Analytics Maturity: Report from the EDUCAUSE/NACUBO 2015 Administrative IT Summit

Abstract

In June 2015, nearly 200 higher education thought leaders representing information technology, business operations, institutional research, and business intelligence and analytics met in Seattle, Washington, to discuss ways to enhance their institutions’ analytics strategies. In this collaboration between EDUCAUSE and NACUBO members, several key takeaways emerged as areas where institutions should focus their efforts as they build analytics maturity. Colleges and universities need to develop support from senior institutional leaders, hire or develop staff members with the right combination of technical and communication skills, use a collaborative approach to build an analytics strategy and vision, and make the analytics program part of the institution’s strategic plan.
