To launch our Ed Insight series, we discussed data! Each institution is responsible for creating programs and degrees that align with industry need, but adequately describing that need can be difficult and confusing.

USHE Chief Economist, Carrie Mayne, joined us to share insights in data collection and how to connect that data to reporting needs in degree proposals. Additionally, Theresa Foxely, from the Economic Development Corporation of Utah, discussed emerging trends.
