Higher education has reached a tipping point – while data access used to be the primary barrier to data-informed decision making, now many institutions struggle to translate all that data into meaningful insights and ultimately, action.

This panel included leaders of national organizations and initiatives for engagement, and discussed the imperative of data literacy and use in the context of community engagement data.
