Transforming Institutional Data into Actionable Information

Ithaca College

Overview

Ithaca College wanted to deepen their understanding of the patterns and trends that lead to better student outcomes – and ultimately student success. To do so, they needed to invest in an institution-wide analytics infrastructure that would reveal insights into the connections between curricular, co-curricular, and student life variables and help define their impact on the overall student experience.

Read the case study to learn how they partnered with HelioCampus to fulfill their vision.

“They know the higher-education issues today’s institutions face — in and out. And they’re also including ongoing data analysis and data science services time even after building the platform and models. That was really impressive. They are willing to share their knowledge with us — and we have become their resource, as well. It’s really a shared investment in a mutual partnership.”
