CONWAY, N.H., Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Rapid Insight, Inc., a leading provider of easy-to-use predictive analytics and data blending software for higher education, is partnering with University Business magazine for a webinar exploring how predictive analytics can be used to address challenges in higher education enrollment management.
Taking place on Tuesday, February 18 at 2 PM ET (11 AM PT), the webinar will feature Arkansas State University's (ASU) Vice Chancellor of Enrollment Management, Dr. Bryan Terry, in conversation with Rapid Insight's analyst manager, James Cousins.
Over nearly three decades in higher education, Dr. Terry has established himself as a leading voice for the importance of a data-driven, student-focused approach to enrollment management—and his results demonstrate that leadership.
Prior to joining ASU, as vice chancellor for enrollment management at University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), Dr. Terry reversed a four-year downtrend in enrollment. And by the fall of 2018, UNCG enrolled a record 20,106 students—the first time the university surpassed 20K in its history. That year also included its largest ever freshman class of nearly 3,000 students.
"As thrilled as Arkansas State must be to have Dr. Terry leading its enrollment strategy," says Cousins, "we're even more excited to join with University Business to discuss the crucial intersection of predictive analytics and enrollment—and how Dr. Terry's experience can inform and empower others."
The topic is timely and urgent. Universities nationwide are seeing steady declines in enrollment, which can be attributed to shrinking pools of applicants, scalebacks in public funding, and increasing competition for those fewer students.
In the February 18 webinar, Dr. Terry will emphasize the significance of data to enrollment management and will share actionable strategies for leveraging data to impact decision-making.
