This webinar will demonstrate how to utilize our in-house Decision Support System to extract valuable data that can help you gain a deeper understanding of your student body. Additionally, we will showcase the latest enhancements we’ve made to our web applications. During this webinar, we will use international students as an example for illustration.

In a 2018 Campus Experience survey, we discovered an impressive 82% of international students expressed a preference for attending UH Manoa if given the opportunity to start their journey anew (77% of their U.S. citizen counterparts responded positively to the same question). Delving further into the data, half of the international students surveyed responded with a resounding “Definitely yes,” showcasing an invisible bond with UH Mānoa (37% of their counterparts shared the same sentiment).
