Oakland University has been selected to participate in a Data Literacy Institute project aimed at increasing the use of data to boost student success, including the number of graduates. "Data collection and analysis are key components of all student success initiatives," said Dr. Anne Hitt, associate provost and associate professor of biological sciences at OU. "We can use data to determine which student success tactics or programs are the most cost-effective in helping different student populations graduate on-time in their chosen major with minimal debt."
