ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 9, 2023 — The FLBUG Conference is not about insects. Rather, its lofty mission includes addressing core business needs, collaborating with Florida colleges, and data analytics. That’s where CFEED comes in.
Diana Pienaar, Director, and Ashton Terry, Senior Manager, Central Florida Education Ecosystem Database (CFEED) will share about data analytics at the Florida Banner Users Group (FLBUG) Conference in Orlando Oct. 19 and 20 at the Valencia College West Campus. The event is free to attend.
The conference opens at 8:30 am on Thursday and includes two full days of engaging conversations. Members of FLBUG, including those from thirteen Florida colleges, will share insights about ways they have used data in various projects, including SAAS and Banner, Better Sleep, Student Communication, and CRM.
Terry and Pienaar will share a presentation titled: “How CFEED Research Helped Shape the Osceola Prosper Program” from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm on Thursday. The Osceola Prosper program has helped a thousand students from Osceola County public schools attend college for free and has also increased matriculation to Valencia College.
“The CFEED research reveals that the Osceola Prosper program has helped 679 SDOC students get closer to their college dreams,” Terry said. “Direct matriculation from SDOC into Valencia increased by 679 students and represents a 44% increase from academic years 2021 and 2022.”
