Rapid Insight Sponsors Association for Institutional Research in the Upper Midwest’s 2020 Virtual ConferenceReading time: 2 minutes
Conway, NH – Rapid Insight, a leading data analytics software provider, is the Platinum sponsor for the Association of Institutional Research of the Upper Midwest (AIRUM)’s annual conference. The conference is a virtual event exclusively presented for the association’s membership, which consists of Institutional Research and Effectiveness professionals across six midwestern states. As the Platinum sponsor, Rapid Insight is the principal financial supporter of the event, which takes place on October 28th-30th.
In May 2020, Rapid Insight delivered a webinar for AIRUM members titled “Recasting IR’s Role as an Institutional Effectiveness Consultancy: One University’s Case Study.” The presentation featured Drew Thiemann, the Director of Institutional Research and Effectiveness at Bellarmine University. AIRUM members can view a recording of the webinar on the association’s website. Additionally, Rapid Insight was a leading sponsor of AIRUM’s 2019 annual conference last November. Rapid Insight offers a 10% price discount to AIRUM members who become new customers.
“We’re thrilled to sponsor AIRUM’s annual event again this year,” said Mike Laracy, Founder and President of Rapid Insight. “The format of 2020’s conference may be different, but the insight and sense of community that AIRUM’s event fosters is more valuable than ever before. We’re excited to connect with AIRUM members, learn from the presenters, and continue our partnership with AIRUM into the future.”
“AIRUM is delighted to be able to continue our strong partnership with Rapid Insight for our 2020 Conference. Their team has been great to work with, and we know our members value their dedication and support of the IR/IE community,” said chair Lesley Lydell.
AIRUM’s 2020 event serves a critical function. Institutional Researchers face unique challenges this year, with dispersed teams collaborating on critical, time-sensitive new projects at their colleges and universities. Simultaneously, these challenges reveal unique opportunities for Institutional Researchers to contribute their expertise in solving problems with data. AIRUM’s conference will bring these professionals together to share techniques to help their institutions find a path forward.
The Association of Institutional Research of the Upper Midwest (AIRUM) is the member-driven professional association for institutional researchers in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. AIRUM is a regional affiliate of the international Association for Institutional Research (AIR) and seeks to provide professional development and networking opportunities for members, facilitate members’ involvement with AIR, and improve and promote research on institutional effectiveness in higher education.
