Tableau User Group

The CMU Tableau User Group (TUG) was organized in 2018 to build the CMU analytics community by bringing together cross-functional Tableau creators, analytics practitioners, and data enthusiasts.

Our primary focus is learning from one another. We meet regularly to explore tips and improve how people at CMU use Tableau. Check out the Data and Analytics Collaborative calendar for event details.

Your participation will add another thread to the rich and diverse fabric of the CMU analytics community, and you’ll learn something in every meeting! All staff and faculty are welcome.

Upcoming Meetings and Events


Have a quick Tableau question or resource to post? Want to request feedback or discuss how-tos with other Tableau users at CMU?


Have a finished dashboard, work in progress, or tip to share at a monthly meeting? Could we interview you about your experience with Tableau?
