The event data from your campus's use of Engage gives you access to uncover a vast amount of information guiding and supporting decision making. Here are three ways that we can use this data today in leveraging student engagement on your campus.
1. Examine Your Event Themes
When each event is created in Engage it has one of nine themes associated with it. You can use this data with the event start month to learn more about the distribution of events offered to students. Take it a step further and select the stacked column chart so that you can visualize the “flow” of those theme offerings over time. If you want your campus-specific event categories, just use the event categories instead of event themes as your dimension.
2. Understand Your Event Offering by Proportion
Instead of looking at just a count of your events that are being offered by, for example, the day of the week, think about creating a proportion and looking at the percent of events that you offer by the day of the week to see how your efforts are distributed. Take it a step further and compare it with event attendance to see if you are targeting the right days to engage students.
3. Who is Doing the Programming on Campus?
With just a couple of steps, you can better understand what areas are offering the programming happening on campus. How much programming are your campus departments doing? By drilling into the data you can see which specific departments are doing the programming or which organizations are most active in the programming efforts.
The great thing is that with Insight you can add all these visualizations to a dashboard and see how they interact to empower an even greater understanding of the work that you are doing to support students.
