HelioCampus, a technology-enabled services company that combines technology with ongoing data science services, has partnered with Ithaca College to reveal insights into the connections between curricular, co-curricular and student life variables and understand their impact on the student experience.
After a year of planning and evaluating possible vendor options, the Ithaca team selected HelioCampus to support a three-year analytics initiative that includes a foundational data infrastructure, data visualization and data science services. "They know the higher-education issues today’s institutions face – in and out,” said Chief Analytics Officer Dr. Yuko Mulugetta, who oversees the Office of Analytics and Institutional Research at Ithaca. “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,” said Mulugetta. Starting with a well-integrated data warehouse, HelioCampus will help Ithaca deliver on their vision, while also supporting their existing data governance structure and predictive analytics initiatives.
Ithaca began working with HelioCampus in June of 2017 to broaden the scope of traditional data integration and analysis, provide advanced access to data for a wider group of stakeholders, and respond to ad hoc requests more efficiently. Ithaca will be able to pull all the data from across the institution together – integrating admissions, enrollment, student success, advancement and financial data not only for operational reporting, but also for advanced strategic analysis.
“Ithaca College’s desire to leverage institutional data to better understand the student experience is something that we are equally passionate about at HelioCampus. We are excited about the opportunity to partner with the Ithaca team on this and several other strategic initiatives.” said HelioCampus CEO, Darren Catalano.
