Fueling a Turnaround With Team-Based Analytics

3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.

A little more than 6 years ago, Florida Atlantic University ranked second from the bottom out of all state schools. To make matters worse, under a performance-based funding model, the state withheld $7 million in allocations. But, 2 years later, the university garnered the #1 rank in performance, reversing its standing in the state system while also eliminating the common achievement gaps by race/ethnicity and income. By integrating predictive analytics solutions with a commitment to targeted interventions, the university cultivated a robust portfolio of best practices, all of which were rooted in an inclusive and teambased philosophy.
