Colleges and universities must not only attract students to their institution, they must also deliver quality programming that ensures students matriculate and – ideally – become enthusiastic donors. With so many potential data sources at play, it is critical to be able to use all relevant data to make decisions – such as what kind of programs to offer, where to focus student recruitment, and how to make the most of fundraising initiatives.
Identify Areas of Opportunity
With quality data ingestion and processing, you will obtain access to standardized data sets, in order to:
- View student, faculty and alumni interaction across your organization;
