How can we monitor which students are engaged in co-curricular activities and campus life? An expansion of data collection in student affairs will allow the College to monitor which populations/people it is serving well and which populations/people improvements can be made for. This project will show how using data collection in events and organizations can best serve the students of Roanoke College. The project will start by training organizations in utilizing ClubHub to collect event attendance data, while working with Student Activities and IT to ensure the system works at its best for all users. The following part of the project will be dedicated to analyzing the data I have collected and provide recommendations to Student Government and the College on where we can focus to best engage all students on campus.
