Adjusting Your Gaze
Webber-Thrush, Diane
CURRENTS, v36 n2 p38-40 Feb 2010
Peter Wylie is a man of many contradictions: a statistician and a storyteller, an introvert who loves an audience, and a self-described data geek with a passion for his work and the people it helps. Wylie is one of the pioneers of predictive modeling, the statistical analysis that uses data to drive educational institutions and nonprofits toward their most likely donors. Working in the field since 1997, Wylie has seen many colleges and universities adopt his methods--but he feels the education sector is only just beginning to realize the full potential of its own data. In this interview, Wylie discusses his work, including his latest analysis of lifetime giving at a broad range of higher education institutions.
