Housing Students: What do we know? What can we know?

Did you know that Housing collects data that informs us about who is likely to struggle as early as the third week of the Fall semester? Housing collects data through surveys, focus groups, and institutional data, and uses that data to tailor how it works with students. This talk will review some of the data the Campus Housing department has collected about its residents, and what that data can tell us about our students and our programs.

Presenter: Nick Ardinger, Assistant Director for Residential Education


The OVPUA’s Office for Research on Student Success (ORSS) is pleased to announce the next installment of its campus lecture series, showcasing research being carried out across UIC to better understand and ultimately improve the success of UIC students. The ORSS Lecture Series on Student Success Research grew out of the UIC Student Success Initiative [], and has the dual purpose of opening a cross-disciplinary dialogue among researchers employing different perspectives and approaches to answer related questions about student success at UIC, and putting that research into the hands of practitioners who can make use of it for the benefit of our students.
