BCSSE has helped us gain a nuanced understanding of the needs and expectations of our incoming students. We have used the data to enhance our advising, peer mentoring, and persistence efforts for first-years, and to identify the students who might benefit from different kinds of outreach.— Jay Coleman, Vice President of Data Analytics, University of North Florida
