University of South Carolina Tableau Day

We're sorry, this event has ended.

Join Tableau users from across the University of South Carolina and enhance your Tableau skills as you learn how Tableau is being leveraged by colleagues across the campus. This event is brought to you by the Division of Information Technology in partnership with Tableau and Salesforce.

Here are overviews of two presentations to be delivered by fellow ACP members Sophie Greenwell, Jonathan Poon, and Dr. Angelina Sylvain.

Institutional Research Powered by Tableau

Institutional dashboards are fundamental tools for providing impactful displays of internal and reported data to the public to improve transparency and accessibility of data. The purpose of this presentation is to showcase the purpose of public-facing dashboards within institutional research, developed visuals that are interactive and comprehensible for the public, and the importance of implementing digital accessibility.

Survey Insights with Tableau

Surveys are an essential mechanism used to gain qualitative and quantitative insights on the student experience, and can inform academic program planning, resource allocation, and leadership priorities. With an increasingly diverse student population and stakeholders eager to assess the experience of various sub-groups, it can be challenging to adequately capture student population nuances in survey results. In this session the speaker will highlight different methodologies that facilitate engagement with and analysis of survey data using Tableau.

We hope you can attend!
