This past May, LSC-Montgomery hosted its annual “Data Camp” conference that not only involves employees from all LSC campuses, but also draws participants from around the country. This year’s focus was Exploring the Human Side of Data and Serving Students in a virtual world. Despite a date change due to a memorable ice storm, the virtual event provided over 250 participants with an opportunity to engage in interactive sessions facilitated by analytic campaign experts. Mike Brookover, CEO and Partner at Alitek Solutions served as keynote speaker. Breakout session topics included Success Strategies for First-Time Student Persistence in a College Success Course (Carol Weller, Education faculty), Crunching the Numbers: How to Create an Enrollment Plan through Marketing & Outreach (Tristyn Davis, Director of Admissions & Outreach, and Mercedes Taylor, Marketing Coordinator) and Data and Employee Engagement - Is that a Thing? (Jessica Granger, Manager of Organizational Development and Melissa Hinshaw, Director of Organizational Development). Recordings of all sessions are available at LoneStar.edu/Datacamp.
