For the past four years, the staff of the Center for Student Analytics have collaborated with dozens of units across campus to discover data-informed insights about what helps students succeed at Utah State University. The following pages highlight 20 of the most useful insights that we have come across over the past year, organized across five audiences—students, faculty, staff, university leadership, and prospective students. As you explore this report, we encourage you to see the student data as a window onto Utah State University itself. We have discovered that while big data helps us to understand how individual students are performing at our institution, it generally tells us a great deal more about the health of USU as an institution—an Aggie community that works diligently to cultivate opportunities for student learning, discovery, and engagement.
