When the analytics skills gap drew global attention two years ago, eyes turned to what colleges and universities are doing to prepare the next generation of analytics and data science professionals. While many institutions implemented graduate and undergraduate programs to help replenish the talent pool a few years down the road, other schools focused on helping experienced business and technology professionals make the transition into data science roles with mid-career education programs.
In reality, the talent pool requires both types of workers; those who bring talent to the table immediately, and those who will require nurturing at entry level positions.
Some forward-thinking organizations are establishing close relationships with higher education, offering financial aid to students, endowing chairs, hiring interns, and helping to shape the curriculums for analytics programs.
Sue Talley, dean of technology for Capella University's School of Business and Technology, discusses best practices in establishing mutually beneficial partnerships between college analytics programs and the business world.
In this session you will learn:
*How colleges and universities are ramping up their efforts to prepare students -- young and not so young, for careers in analytics
How organizations are partnering with colleges to ensure that the enterprises and the businesses down the street have a data science talent pool to draw upon
What goes into a data science curriculum in terms of technical training and business-skill development
What your organization can do to work with local educational institutions to develop a workforce rich in analytics skills and STEM talents
The All Analytics Academy program Build a Successful Analytics Team is presenting educational sessions throughout November.
While it may appear that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) do not have issues of domestic violence on their campuses they in fact do. There are many barriers that women of color may experience in seeking assistance. In 2011 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights published The Dear College letter. This set the guidelines for addressing the sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice Office of Violence Against has grants available to help assist colleges and universities to meet the mandates of the Dear Colleague letter. Tonight we will discuss how HBCU’s are addressing the issue of domestic violence and the resources for the survivor.
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* Dr. Ben Carson also announces that he is running for President.
* Religious colleges may be at risk if the Supreme Court approves homosexual “marriage”.
* GoFundMe’s new policy apparently persecute Christian fundraisers.

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students in U.S., with approximately 1,100 students dying by suicide each year. In addition, approximately 1% of undergraduates attempt suicide and 6-9% seriously consider suicide each year. It is recognized that youth suicide is influenced by many factors; research has indicated that one such factor is suicide contagion, a phenomenon to which teenagers and young adults are particularly vulnerable. Suicide contagion, sometimes referred to as suicide modeling, is the process wherein the direct or indirect knowledge of one suicide facilitates the occurrence of a subsequent suicide. There is ample evidence to support concerns about suicide contagion/modeling; several sources of this evidence will be presented. Given the prevalence of suicide on college campuses, and the associated risk of contagion and clustering, it is imperative that colleges develop effective and comprehensive postvention strategies. This blogtalk will present specific postvention strategies that colleges and universities can use to limit the risk of further suicides through contagion.
