The University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) has been recognized by Campus Labs—a leading company that works with institutions to transform higher education through data and analytics—as a winner in its annual awards program. The Campus Labs awards recognize institutions using the Campus Labs platform to drive genuine improvement and bold innovation on campus, from streamlining administrative processes to enhancing overall student experience.
Each of Campus Labs’ more than 1,400 member campuses is eligible for awards in five categories: All Star, Rising Star, Trailblazer, Collaborator and Champion—with each category recognizing campuses or individuals in different stages of implementing projects across campus. In recognition of their achievements, winners were awarded more than $10,000, in total, in educational grants and prizes, including funds to further advance the successful adoption and impact of Campus Labs tools on campus.
“The award recognizes Marilyn Davies College of Business’ efforts to use a data-driven approach to drive instructional excellence. The College was selected based on the strong collaboration between its Office of Instructional Excellence and Office of Business Analytics & Decision Support in employing qualitative and quantitative methods to analyze data from IDEA-Campus Labs end-of-course student opinion surveys and use the results of the analysis to inform and improve instructional practices," said Dr. Sedef Uzuner Smith, executive director of Instruction and Faculty Development at UHD's Marilyn Davies College of Business.
