Conference Overview

The focus of this year’s conference is “the art of student engagement in today’s data driven culture” which hones in on the need to meet the unprecedented demand for accountability and student success. This focus has shifted decision-making in higher education, which has become predicated upon access to and use of “real time” data and information. The Moving the Needle conference is designed for leadership teams from post-secondary institutions looking to engage in collaborative discussions and innovative methods regarding the improved use of data leading to student success.

2017 Topic Discussions include:

  • Clarifying Path to Student’s Goal
  • Helping Student Choose and Enter a Pathway
  • Keeping Students on a Pathway
  • Ensuring Students are Learning

Over 250 Higher Education professionals – specifically those committed to student engagement and success initiatives, including but not limited to Presidents, VPs, Faculty, Directors, Coordinators, Advisors and Institutional Researchers – will be in attendance at Moving the Needle.

This year’s conference will be held at St. Petersburg College’s Seminole campus.
