Read It Right: Data Literacy's Impact on Institutional Mission
To make informed decisions, meet campus needs, and increase student success, leaders must move their institutions from data collection to action. Doing so involves making a strong push for data literacy, ensuring that everyone across the institution has a basic understanding of, comfort with, and ability to use (and question) data.
Educating campus constituents and changing campus culture – through good data governance, access, and architecture – can increase data literacy and fluency.
