Chief data officers speak on the state of campus analytics - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

Purdue, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the University of South Carolina all have chief data officers — people to lead the use of analytics in higher ed decision-making — and these leaders all have different insights about their roles. Campus Technology reports Purdue’s CDO helped develop a new data governance structure to refresh old policy and when questions come up, stakeholders from all corners of campus are included — a process that takes longer, but engages all the right people early in the process. At UW-Madison, the CDO’s office is planning a comprehensive culture shift about who should be looking at data and how they should be using it, and at the University of South Carolina, they are building out their data warehouse and creating new systems given their analytics and reporting goals.
