As provost of a regional university, Tristan Denley has pioneered a wide variety of initiatives to improve college completion and students' academic success. These ideas stretch from institutional transformation and course redesign in a variety of disciplines, to the role of predictive analytics and data mining in higher education. His most recent work has created a course recommendation system that successfully pairs current students with the courses that best fit their talents and program of study for upcoming semesters. This system, which combines hundreds of thousands of past students' grades with each student's transcript to make individualized recommendations for current students, was an award winner at this year's IMS Global Learning Impact Awards.
