Student Data Warehouse (SDW)
The Student Data Warehouse (SDW) is a repository of student data, refreshed daily, which allows departments to run queries without having to request them from the University Registrar’s Office. In February 2021, the information housed within SDW migrated to Tableau, a transition which provided benefits including a dashboarding mechanism and better data visualization.
