University Leadership Dashboards

This effort represents the next step in our data maturity journey. Previous investments to improve data access and integration capabilities, form a Data Stewardship Council, and explore data visualizations using per-user Tableau licensing have established the building blocks for us to grow. This foundational work and initial steps to build an enterprise data repository, initiated through the Financial Data Warehouse modernization project, has set us on a successful trajectory to provide centralized university data visualizations.

In partnership with the Vice Provost for Institutional Effectiveness and Planning, we identified university-level data problems and built leadership dashboards. The Data Analytics Sharing Hub (DASH) provides a central resource for easy access to data visualizations (dashboards) and reports from academic and administrative departments. Campus affiliates can use this information to discover, share, and guide decisions.
