To get the highest return on your investment, you must use your data in multiple ways. The resources on this page are a great way to share and present your data to others on campus.

When you think about using your College Student Inventory (CSI) results, you may have questions about best practices including which student lists you should be pulling and with whom they should be shared. We have created a new resource with recommended lists you can export into Excel along with ideas on how to use these lists.

As a reminder, if you need a refresher on how to filter or export, review the Retention Data Center Users Guide.

To facilitate the understanding of your RMS Survey Data, we think you will find our recorded webinar and resources helpful.

Communicating the results of the RMS Surveys with the campus community will go a long way to ensuring ongoing collaboration, and perhaps even building receptivity to new partnerships. This infographic can be used to communicate a high level view of student risk, receptivity and requests for support. Use it as is and/or with the available PowerPoint presentation and supplement with other relevant campus information (for example, historical retention rates, net tuition revenue per student, the cost of attrition, comparisons of your retention and graduation rates with your peers and aspirant institutions.)

We recommend sharing this information at opening faculty meetings, with academic advisors, with department chairs (you can do additional graphics with just specific majors), the retention task force, and, parents (in particular, the Top Ten Requests for Assistance).
