UW Profiles data visualizations (http://uwprofiles.uw.edu) have greatly enhanced how the University can use data to understand key metrics about students. We are pleased to announce that the data used to create these dashboards is now available for download.
Anyone with Tableau software and access to student data in the Enterprise Data Warehouse can download these data files to craft customized visualizations meaningful to their constituents, using the same UW Profiles data. Detailed definitions and source information are available for each of the four data models (Degrees, Graduation/Retention, Student Credit Hours, and Student). Visit the Data Models tab (https://uwprofiles.uw.edu/#tab2) in the Portal to get started.
This joint effort between the Office of Planning & Budgeting and Enterprise Data & Analytics represents the 3rd major release of UW Profiles. In the pipeline are dashboards using research administration data, expected to release later this summer.
