- Institutional Research and Assessment
Sammara has spent over fourteen years working in higher education in the areas of institutional research, effectiveness, assessment, compliance, and enrollment management. Her career has been driven by the use of data and technology to help end-users make informed data-driven decisions and efficiently use resources to increase student success and improve the overall student experience. She believes that awareness and accountability are possible when data is carefully gathered and thoroughly interpreted. Sammara serves the university by providing decision support to faculty and staff in a broad range of areas: student admissions, enrollment, factors underlying persistence, student outcomes, and so many others.
