About DIA

Our name comes from our motto: "Data to Information, Information to Action." Yes, many institutions of higher education could use more or better data from assessments, surveys, and other instruments, but the real challenge is making those data meaningful and impactful. Thus, our model works to not just help colleges and universities generate data, but to make meaning of those data, communicate that meaning to the right people, and improve practice. All this is done in the context of improving student learning and success, and can therefore be applied in a variety of curricular and co-curricular settings. By reading about our mission, services, and people, you can learn how our approach moves beyond episodic consultation to a collaborative model, continually and iteratively working with our partners to drive success.
