As the Associate Provost for Institutional Research and Effectiveness at Ohio University, Loralyn leads the university’s new analytics and decision-support initiative including the implementation of a modern data infrastructure and visualization platform, data governance structure, and end-user data literacy training for student lifecycle data. This initiative will allow OHIO to move from static tables and ad hoc reporting to a self-serve analytics environment where university decision-makers can access the data they need, when they need it. Previously, Loralyn designed and implemented a comprehensive student success program at Paul Smith’s College that won the 2015 University Business Inaugural Models of Excellence Program, the 2013 Lee Noel, Randi Levitz Retention Excellence Award and the Starfish 360 Student Success Award.
