Deepening Our Understanding of Students Through Data

Higher education institutions are well versed in using data to inform decision-making — but when it comes to students, the information we collect can be one-dimensional. In this session, leaders from Achieving the Dream will share insights from “Knowing Our Students,” a recently released guidebook examining what it means to really know students and how to use data more effectively to support student success and close equity gaps. Attendees will leave with an understanding of what is included in the guidebook, what data points are most useful to understand students in new ways, and a process to support the use of these data to design a student experience that meets students where they are.


  • Dr. Laurie Fladd, Director of Holistic Student Supports, Achieving the Dream
  • Shara Davis, Strategic Data and Holistic Student Supports Coach, Achieving the Dream
