Driscoll Hall, Room 132
Reception to follow in the Foyer of Driscoll Hall

On October 10, Sacha Litman from Measuring Success will lead us through an exploration of how we can use data to inform our decision making that will help lead to sustainability – rather than relying on anecdotal and historical decision making patterns. This includes leveraging data we already have that we will want to collect.  During the presentation, we’ll also examine ways of aligning vision and values with data and explore some of the challenges to this endeavor.
