U Notre Dame, SynGlyphX Partner on Enrollment Data Visualization Tool

The University of Notre Dame has partnered with SynGlyphX, a provider of interactive data visualization and discovery technology, to develop an interactive data visualization software tool designed for enrollment management and admissions offices.

The tool, called Enrollment Management GlyphKIT, or GlyphKIT for short, is intended to help with the decision-making process by making vast amounts of data more easily accessible to enrollment and admissions staff. The partners will make GlyphKIT available to other colleges and universities, and it will "sit on top of existing enrollment management applications and databases," according to Mark E. Sloan, CEO of SynGlyphX.

SynGlyphX and the University of Notre Dame claim the GlyphKIT will offer the following benefits:

  • Use of layers of quantitative and qualitative considerations in the selection process;
  • Speeding up the admissions and scholarship award decision-making process;
  • Reducing the amount of time required to read and comprehend information by presenting it visually; and
  • Faster and improved scenario analyses on all data associated with an applicant or prospective enrollee.

"Notre Dame is excited about this collaboration with SynGlyphX as it will not only help our enrollment management office, but we see this as a means of also helping a wide variety of colleges and universities more efficiently and effectively address their enrollment management decisions," said Don Bishop, associate vice president of undergraduate enrollment at the University of Notre Dame, in a prepared statement.
