WCET's 28th Annual Meeting
Creating New Paradigms with Institution-Wide Analytics at UMUC

Moderator: , Instructional Design Project Manager for Special Project Grants, Colorado Community College System
Speaker: , Assistant Vice Provost for Student Success, University of Maryland University College
Speaker: , Vice President, Client Services, HelioCampus


Since 2010, UMUC has undergone a cultural transformation driven by an institution-wide commitment to evidence based decision making. The UMUC Office of Analytics’ leadership, platform and approach, served as a catalyst during this evolution. After much success within UMUC, the university created a new company, HelioCampus, in 2015. HelioCampus leverages the technology platform and process model created by the Office of Analytics to enable institutional analytics beyond UMUC.

HelioCampus continues to serve as a change agent within within UMUC by providing institutional leaders and stakeholders greater visibility into the connections between disparate data and ongoing opportunities for institutional improvement. This approach helps to facilitate collaboration among different units by not just providing data but presenting data in a meaningful context, such as by specific student segments, an academic program, or critical moments in the student lifecycle.

Learn more about the platform, process, and approach that has resulted in a culture of cross-functional collaboration within UMUC to improve outcomes through analytics. This presentation will also share a framework for identifying opportunities for improvement, coordinating intervention efforts, and systematically evaluating initiatives.
