How Can I Learn More About Student Data
Join the Student Data Council!
In the fall of 2014, the Student Data Council was established to bring together individuals across the university who work with student data in order to foster learning and communication as well as establish standards for student data definitions and reporting.
To stay informed on the Council’s work subscribe to the student-data mailman list, meeting announcements and other Student Data Council information will be distributed through the list.
