"Becoming an engaged member of the Student Success Analytics Community Group was a game-changer when it came to my professional development. I connected with a network of practitioners and scholars who care deeply about their work and who are making substantive contributions to the field. We have published papers, presented, and co-created resources that none of us would have accomplished alone."
