Big Data at the University

Recently, Leslie Dare, my supervisor here at N.C. State’s Division of Student Affairs, asked me to re-image my career path as NCSU undergoes reorganization.

I quickly answered, Big Data.

In the coming months I plan to research the field and how I can apply its principals to data stored in RecTrac. NCSU also has an Institute for Advanced Analytics which will be a great resource.

I’m excited about applying what I learn in other areas of Student Affairs and the prospect of deriving insight from the wealth of data around us.
