Faculty Present GPS Analytics for Projects on Student Success
The Office of Advising Technology and DASA Assessment embarked on a new initiative the past two years to offer one-time funding opportunities to faculty interested in analyzing and leveraging data related to undergraduate student success. The main goal of the initiative was to encourage faculty-led, focused institutional research that supports data-informed decision making through the use of Institution Reports in the Student Success GPS platform and additional institutional data as needed.
On Tuesday, April 27, Advising Technology and DASA Assessment hosted a showcase to highlight some of the GPS Analytics award recipients’ findings from their projects and the ways in which they hope to address identified barriers to student success. The panelists included:
- Kimberly Bush, teaching associate professor and director of undergraduate programs- parks, recreation, and tourism management, College of Natural Resources
- Daniel Gruehn, associate professor and director of undergraduate programs, and Dana Kotter-Gruehn, associate teaching professor and director of academic advising- psychology, College of Humanities and Social Sciences
- Alice Lee, associate teaching professor- biological sciences, College of Sciences
- Dmitri Mitin, assistant teaching professor- political science, College of Humanities and Social Sciences
- Dana Thomas, coordinator of advising- biological sciences, College of Sciences
Please help us in congratulating these phenomenal faculty members for their commitment toward supporting student success at NC State University!
