As an Ellucian Partner, we’re looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans next week. In addition to several of us from Rapid Insight, some of our customers will be with us to discuss how they are utilizing their SIS data for predictive analytics to increase student retention, to shape their incoming class, and to forecast headcount and financial outlay.  Johnny Lail from Western Carolina University will be at the Rapid Insight booth to talk about how Western Carolina is making optimal use of their Banner data for predictive modeling. If you’re interested in talking with Johnny or any other Rapid Insight customers during the conference, we’d be happy to schedule a time, or just feel free to stop by our booth (#243).

A few weeks after ellucian Live, University Business will be hosting a webinar with Dr. Bryan Terry, Associate Provost of Enrollment Management at University of North Carolina – Greensboro.  This will take place at 2:00 ET on March 5th.   Dr. Terry will be talking about how UNC Greensboro has utilized predictive analytics to bring about a 4.5 point improvement in their student retention rate.


I think I speak for both Rapid Insight as well as ellucian when I say that we’re looking forward to seeing you at ellucian Live!  Safe travels to all of you.

Best Regards,

Paul Kirsch
