Student Enrollment and Success Dashboards

Dashboards were designed using Business Intelligence software to assist College executives and policymakers to monitor performance on significant measures by providing up-to-date information in a readily accessible location. These provides for:

  • Direct stakeholder access to College performance data;
  • Improved data definition and consistency to facilitate consensus and reliable interpretations;
  • Increased transparency to support institutional oversight and accountability;
  • Timely access to performance information to contribute to evidence-based policy-making and strategic planning; and
  • Improved efficiency in establishing benchmarks, monitoring performance, and evaluating results.

To ensure the privacy of student performance data, access to the dashboards is limited to certain staff members responsible for program management, institutional research, and student support.
