Daniel Eilen

Associate Director

University of Central Florida

I am described as an energetic, enthusiastic, innovative, motivational, self-directed person, committed in my career to helping others. I have experience managing large projects and education programs within Colleges and Universities. I am currently responsible for the strategic implementation of Big Data programs focusing on entrepreneurialism and innovation aligned with industry needs. At the Krannert School of Management, Purdue University, I was responsible for managing the Board Fellows program which paired students with companies in the community allowing the students to develop their professional portfolio and complete projects for the organization. In my current role, I am responsible for building relationships, managing large grants, leading teams, and have been successful in my business development endeavors. One of the most rewarding aspects of my career has been creating opportunities for college students to reach their professional dreams. Through these experiences I have helped so many students transition to satisfying future careers.

What interests you?

15 to Finish

Boost the number of students who are on track for on-time graduation by encouraging enrollment in 15 credits each semester (30 credits per year, including summers). Financial aid dollars, as well as institutional process and practice, should support that standard.

Math Pathways

Ensure all students enroll in and complete gateway math in their first year by designing math courses that are aligned with the skills students need for their chosen program of study.

Corequisite Support

Increase gateway course completion within the first year by enrolling entering students into the college-level math and English courses, providing those who need additional help a concurrent course or lab that offers just-in-time academic support.

Momentum Year

Build momentum so students meet first-year benchmarks: informed choice of meta major or major, enrollment in 30 credits with nine in the program of study and completion of gateway courses. Provide early support and guidance for decision making, using interest assessments and labor-market data.

Academic Maps with Proactive Advising

Default students onto highly-structured academic maps that include 15 credits per semester (or 30 per year), indicate milestone and pre-requisite courses, and empower advisors to effectively monitor progress and provide intervention as needed.

A Better Deal for Returning Adults

Increase degree attainment by inviting adult learners back to complete their education, providing a redesigned system that offers accelerated courses, year-round enrollment and predictable schedules. Give credit for prior learning and experience and additional support to help students navigate the system.
