Survey Report White Paper

Leadership Perspectives on Higher Education Data Strategy

This Fall, we surveyed 65 presidents, provosts, and other leaders about their priorities for data, analytics, and technology in the coming year. We found that while data is more essential than ever, it remains difficult to access and apply. Read the report to learn about the impact of the staffing crunch on technical teams, how to engage IR more strategically, and what leaders are excited to do with data.

From enrollment to advancement, data plays a key role in nearly every decision an institution makes. Even so, institutions struggle with common and persistent roadblocks including data access gaps, staffing shortages, and a lack of trust in campus data.

How do Presidents, Provosts, and other leaders plan to grapple with and overcome these data roadblocks to achieve success in the coming years? In this new report, we reveal insights from EAB’s 2022 data and analytics leadership survey.
