Dr. Jodi Levine Laufgraben
The DSU Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs held its second annual Data Day on May 14, an event in which faculty and staff met to discuss their assessment data and to create action plans for impacting future data.
Dr. Jodi Levine Laufgraben, vice provost for Academic Affairs, Assessment and Institutional Research at Temple University, was the keynote speaker for the Data Day event. Dr. Laufgraben has 24 years of experience in higher education, which includes administration, accreditation management, teaching, faculty development, program evaluation and assessment. Her presentation entitled “Closing the Loop: What it really means and how to do it effectively” was well received by more than 100 Data Day attendees.
During the afternoon session, faculty, staff and administrators applied some of these principles to improve the assessment processes in their units. A recording of Dr. Laufgraben’s presentation will be available in the Assessment Office; contact Bina Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org  for more information.
