Using Data and Analytics to Eliminate Achievement Gaps (SEM Conference)

November 11, 2018

For the past decade, Georgia State University has been at the leading edge of demographic shifts in the southeast. Even while doubling the numbers of non-white and low-income students it enrolls, Georgia State has raised graduation rates by 22 percentage points and closed all achievement gaps based on race, ethnicity, and income-level. It now awards more bachelor’s degrees to African Americans than any other college or university in the nation. Through a discussion of innovations ranging from chat bots and predictive analytics to meta-majors and completion grants, the session will cover lessons learned from Georgia State’s transformation and outline several practical and low-cost steps that campuses can take to improve outcomes for underserved students.
