Meet Me in St. Louis: ACHE Kicks off Today!

While it might not be as entertaining as the song and dance made so famous by the legendary Judi Garland in the 1940’s movie, St. Louis will not disappoint as the setting for the collaborative 2015 ACHE Annual Conference and Meeting — we hope to meet you there!

Don’t miss your chance to meet our own Colleen McConeghy, who will be leading the breakout session “Aggregate, Analyze, Act: Keeping Students Moving Toward Graduation.” Colleen will highlight the ways institutions can leverage a unique combination of data and people to meet with and motivate students throughout the student lifecycle.

Session topics and discussions will include:

  • Ways to design, configure and implement a student-centric retention program
  • The big and small data points such as enrollment, academic and behavioral data that you should be collecting to help predict and monitor student risk, progress and success
  • The ways that your coaches, advisors, faculty and others can apply this data in a student-centric manner to mentor students
  • Strategies for early intervention, including tips for connecting with students prior to them showing signs of disengagement

ACHE attendees will gather at the St. Louis Union Station from November 9 – 11, sharing ideas and building strategic connections. For more information, please visit:
