Harnessing the power of big data to increase revenue and elevate student success
A case study from Southern Illinois University
- About: Southern Illinois University is a Carnegie-classified high research public university with a total enrollment of 17,964 students and a six-year graduation rate of 43%. With "the brains of a national research institution, and the heart of a small college", SIU serves a dual mission: access and quality.
- Challenge: Over the past several decades, SIU has lost $30 million in state funding and faced a significant decrease in enrollment, leading the institution to revamp its recruitment and retention strategies.
- Solution: Partnering with the SSC, SIU armed advisors and administrators with an integrated technology solution to enable shared communication and better decision-making at all levels.
