On Thursday, September 19, at 9:40 am, Rayane Alamuddin and Daniel Rossman will provide an overview of data from the Monitoring Academic Analytics to Promote Success (MAAPS) project at the University Innovation Alliance (UIA) Proactive Advising Public Learning Event in Arlington, Virginia. Later that morning, Rayane is moderating the panel “Lessons from MAAPS.” Panelists include Allison Calhoun-Brown (Georgia State University), Alex Aljets (Oregon State University), and Christina King (Purdue University). These morning sessions are open to the public, and registration is open through Eventbrite.

In the afternoon, Rayane and Daniel will lead a MAAPS “deep dive” session for UIA member attendees.


The Monitoring Academic Analytics to Promote Student Success (MAAPS) project consisted of a 10,000-student randomized control trial that sought to validate the effectiveness of proactive advising in increasing retention and graduation rates for low-income and first-generation college students. This project was funded by the US Department of Education’s First in the World grant competition.
