An Open Research Forum - Spring 2022

Faculty and Staff Research Presentations on Student Success

Teams of faculty and staff from colleges and divisions across the university will share their research finding in exploring the challenges to timely graduation. Join us in these discussions and learn how we can remove barriers to student success. Please see the information below regarding each forum and RSVP!

All presentations will be held 12pm-1:30pm.

Forum 1: "Finding the Right Path to Graduate"

  • April 20th, 2022, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
  • Project Description: One of the key objectives of this project is to provide the University with strategies to improve student graduation rates and to help students find the right path to graduate. This study will utilize both econometric modeling as well as machine learning approaches. The econometric approach will help us to better understand major switching and its consequences. It will also aid our machine learning approach in building a predictive model. The results from econometric and machine learning will help to build an early recommendation system on major switching for student success.

  • Forum 5: "Abating Attrition"
    • ​April 26th, 2022, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
    • Project Description: This project seeks to determine the causes and antecedents to student attrition at The Beach. Our research questions for this project surround issues related to identification. In particular, we are interested in knowing (1) who the students are that decide to leave our campus. We are also interested in knowing (2) why they are leaving and what we can do about it from the standpoint of institutional intervention.
