How This Program Benefits You


Student Success Dashboard

The CSU Student Success Dashboard is an easy-to-navigate data dashboard that visualizes institutional student data in new and powerful ways. Our motto is: “Every number is a person, and every person has a story.” The Dashboard constitutes the main source material for the Analytics Certificate Program and allows program participants of all data-literacy levels to understand equity and student success issues with accessible data at their fingertips.

Engaging Curriculum

Our equity-focused curriculum asks cross-divisional teams to tackle and improve student success issues by understanding and embracing the diversity of our students, valuing their individual experiences and needs, and thinking through strategies that shift our institutions to being student-ready and student-centered.

Building Community with Peers

Building Community with Peers

Our Analytics Certificate Program requires campuses to assemble a team of passionate, caring, and action-driven faculty, staff, and administrators, and invites them to work, learn, and inspire each other to develop approaches to improving student success. Program participants can expect to become data ambassadors who will return to their departments and programs and build capacity among their peers to grow and scale their student success efforts.
