Change Isn't Easy
Evolving the way you use technology and data, building an outcomes-driven culture, understanding how to use analytical insight to pinpoint change and measure results…These are not small tasks.
But through our carefully curated consulting engagements, successfully navigating changes like these is possible. Work hand-in-hand with higher education experts to tackle challenges head on and start driving important change at your institution.
What Challenge Are You Ready To Tackle?
Implementing change across an entire institution is a critical, yet overwhelming task. In today’s higher education environment, institutions that determine analytics as central to accomplishing the larger institutional mission can certainly realize the benefits of improved student success. However, with a network of colleges, units, working groups, and individuals who respond to change in different ways, leading this effort requires the right structure and communication.
By working hand-in-hand with a Civitas Learning consultant, you will have the upper hand in navigating this change. Following a comprehensive discovery process, your consultant will design an institution-specific plan to create the conditions for change, including unique insights, critical milestones, and a targeted action plan.
With data residing in different areas across an institution, often with varying levels of detail and access, seeing the complete picture in an efficient way requires more time and resources than many are capable of providing. Identifying the right data strategy that aligns with all departments and complements your existing analytics expertise is a critical step, and one that the Civitas Learning consultants have several years of experience solving.
Your consultant will guide you through a process of data mapping across your institution, which includes identifying any gaps, duplicate efforts, and data capacity restraints. This process will help your institution move towards a culture that supports continuous tracking, assessment, and iterative improvement around plan objectives.
When your institution is facing big change, it’s hard to even know where to begin. Civitas Learning can help. Following a complimentary consultation, your Civitas Learning consultant can recommend next steps and guide you and your team through a consulting engagement customized to the needs of your institution.
