Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Postsecondary Success

Michelle Cooper, president of the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP), explains we need to “know our numbers” in higher ed so we can see how we’re doing and how to improve.


Jennifer Engle, senior program officer at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, explains that when we don’t listen to data, we’re not listening to students.


Deborah Santiago, COO and vice president for policy at Excelencia in Education, says better higher ed data are essential— especially for helping the new majority of students.


Kati Haycock, president of The Education Trust, has never seen a college or university make great strides in increasing student success without data playing a critical role.
