2017 Conference

Discovering an Oasis in the Desert of Data”

Please join us at the 2017 RMAIR conference in Scottsdale, AZ. This year’s conference will be held Wednesday, October 4th, through Friday, October 6th in the heart of Scottsdale at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort.

“Discovering an Oasis in the Desert of Data”

In any organization there are data that are “hot” and data that are harder to find or even hidden.  RMAIR members are encouraged to submit proposals that illustrate how this theme broadly applies to our work in Institutional Research.  For example:

  • How do you bring new insight to your institution with data?
  • How can you find these scattered oases throughout your institution and why is that worth the effort?
  • How have you worked within your institution to bring new data to light?  Where have you found unexpected oases?
  • How do you keep the never-ending dunes of your work (external reporting, for example) fresh while working toward the next oasis?

Our multiple session formats – Research Paper, Panel Discussion, Best Practices/Nuts-and-Bolts, Poster, Discussion Group – will allow for Institutional Research stories to be told in rich and dynamic ways.

Conference registration is now open!
