A variety of topics related to the details of the process, data tools being used, importance of campus-wide collaboration and creating a culture that depends upon data will be discussed. In addition, a brief demonstration of the SC4 information dashboard will be shared with the audience, as well as a discussion regarding reporting challenges and solutions being used on other campuses.
