The office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Academic will host Dr Colleen Carmean, Founder of Ethical Analytics Group, to present this seminar.

The recently developed Wits Institutional Framework for Student Success provides the basis for integrated, holistic efforts to promote and improve student success across the University. Underlying these efforts is the appropriate collection, analysis and use of data as the basis for decision-making. Guidelines are needed as to what data are collected by whom, how, in what format, and who gets to use data for which purposes. Wits wishes to develop a framework for governance and ethical use of data. The input of known experts in the field like Carmean will be valuable in crafting this framework.
