This white paper is designed to explain predictive analytics, followed by a look at how it can impact activity at the highest levels of institutional management. We provide examples of how predictive analytics has been used at a variety of institutions, including a review of its potential pitfalls and benefits. Citing interviews with practitioners, this white paper provides concrete examples of how predictive analytics has led to measurable performance improvements. Finally, we close with a call to action to all colleges and universities to consider building predictive analytics into their toolbox of techniques that inform and enable evidence-based decision-making.
