2018 Career Pathways Initiative 3rd Annual Convening and Data Institute – Ft. Lauderdale

This year’s theme, Purposeful Disruption, will engage faculty, staff and executive leadership from more than 40 institutions on purposeful approaches to leveraging disruptions in higher education.

Sponsored by the Lilly Endowment, Inc., with generous support from the Walmart Foundation for the Data Institute, the two-and-a-half day convening will feature keynote speakers from the higher education sector and beyond. Speakers will address the needs of the 21st Century workforce, large-scale change, and a rapidly changing, technologically-driven world.

The Institute will feature three data session formats including Technology Boot Camps, Bring Your Own Data sessions and Work Without Borders sessions. The content-rich program, will bring together leading industry experts on data management and analytics to help institutions gain 1) a better understanding of how to effectively use data technology on their respective campuses; 2) knowledge on how to best execute data analysis projects and produce useful reports; and 3) tools to develop necessary relationships to facilitate cross-campus data sharing and communication.
