Data and Demographics: Driving the Future of Higher Education

In celebration of the State University of New York (SUNY) System’s successes in higher education planning, the SUNY System Administration and the State of New York Construction Fund are playing host to this year’s conference at one of SUNY’s premier institutions, the University at Albany. This event is an opportunity for us to come together and explore how SUNY and other institutions across the region are grappling with critical questions around data and demographics:

  • How can we most effectively use technology to facilitate planning processes and provide quality education?
  • How can we implement tools and analytics to make use of plentifully available data to support smart planning and decision-making?
  • What are the best available tools to improve project planning on college and university campuses?
  • How can better asset management and operational analytics help with efficient, effective use of institutional resources?
  • How can we use collected information and data to create more equitable, accessible, and welcoming environments?
  • How can we apply data to help mitigate the causes and effects of climate change?

In response to these questions, SUNY has built a facility condition index and space utilization dashboard that aims to harness their abundant existing data and examine overall data governance at the system level. As the conference program highlights these innovations at SUNY, we invite you to share your own stories along this theme as well as other topics addressing pressing problems or employing new ideas to reimagine the future of higher education.
