Innovative Use of Data
Data is a key component to understanding how to support students in getting TO and THROUGH college. UFCS is building off of the Texas statewide network, to continue increasing the impact of various initiatives, that help our students in areas of social justice, equity, and college persistence.

Real-time data is a critical piece of this vision to enable data-driven insights and an improved student experience. On a national level, there have been innovative ways to effectively track data, analyze student academic behavior, and predict outcomes. Through integration of data, including student demographics, admissions, academic performance and more, some universities are able to develop a “360-degree” profile of their students and build intervention and support programs around their specific needs. UFCS has begun looking into ways to tap into this type of resource as we begin to build partnerships with Higher Education institutes.
