Edify Data Strategy Series

There are no more upcoming sessions for this event.

The Edify Data Strategy Series consists of four interactive sessions focused on popular Edify Accelerators. Accelerators are workspaces with flexible multi-source analytics designed to answer a common set of higher ed business questions. Sessions will focus on program review, enrollment, advancement, and student success.


This series is suitable for Edify partners, Academic Performance Solutions (APS) partners, and any other individuals interested in learning more about Edify. Attendees will learn how these tools can support their institutional priorities, as well as hear how institutions are using these Accelerators today.

  • For current Edify partners, these sessions are great opportunities to spark ideas for Edify professional service hours utilization, discuss challenges, and network with peers in similar institutional roles.
  • For institutions that do not yet have Edify, these sessions are opportunities to learn more about the product and how it can bring value to your institution via customized dashboard capabilities.

Recommended Attendees:

  • Edify program sponsors, program owners, value leads, and functional area leads
  • Individuals interested in learning how Edify can support their institutional goals

West Virginia University and South Dakota Board of Regents: Streamline the Program Review Process with Custom Dashboards

Program review is a long-term process that institutions undergo to evaluate their academic programs. The process, while necessary, can be tedious and exacerbated by the inability to collect similar information across programs. In this session, we will be joined by guest speakers from West Virginia University (WVU) and the South Dakota Board of Regents (SDBOR). WVU streamlined their program review process with Academic Performance Solutions (APS) metrics and built a customized Edify dashboard to further enhance their process. SDBOR built customized Edify dashboards for all six of their campuses, providing standardized data and resources across the system.

Recommended Attendees: Edify and APS program sponsors, program owners, value leads, and other individuals overseeing the program review process at their institution.

Improve Student Success Outcomes with Edify

Student success is the primary goal of every higher education institution – and there are many different approaches to this work.

In this session, we’ll discuss the wide range of Edify Accelerators that can empower leaders with data to better support student success. Specifically, we’ll explore the following Accelerators: Course Success Equity, Financial Barriers Identifier, LMS Utilization, Success and Retention Opportunities, and Transfer Success Equity.
