The fifth annual Summit will bring together more than 250 higher education professionals for a deep dive into the data and technology capacity area of ATD’s Institutional Capacity Framework. Programming is designed around three tracks to help institutions: (1) improve student success outcomes by building capacity and a comprehensive, aligned strategy to support a culture of inquiry and evidence; (2) examining the use of data as a lever in pathways reform; and (3) improving institutional effectiveness practices. Each track incorporates equity-minded practices. Nationally-recognized speakers will discuss topics such as the anticipated impact of changing demographics on the demand for higher education – and what to do about it.  Register here. #ATDDataSummit #ATDAnalytics
