NEXT STEPS
Evaluate additional subjects
Student Retention
Space management
Classroom/Class Lab utilization
Square footage
Faculty
Salaries
Attrition
Facilitate Campus Discussion
LESSONS LEARNED
Peer comparisons are currently
limited to IPEDS only.
Gained an understanding of why
IPEDS definition is not a “good fit”
for UGA.
Recognized the impact on the
institution and state when using
limited IPEDS definition.
LESSONS LEARNED CONT’D
Campus-wide and perhaps systemwide discussion greatly needed.
Institutional initiatives will benefit
from a comprehensive and cohesive
approach to defining STEM.
Consider ways to influence changes
in STEM system definitions.
