Dr. Huie recently presented at the Data Visualization Summit in Boston - the largest gathering of Fortune 500 business executives leading big data and data visualization initiatives.
Our presentations take you behind the scenes! We’ve been out. Out of the office and out of Austin. Staff members have been presenting at conferences, discussing research, as well as sharing how our productivity dashboard has evolved. We’ll continue adding to these, so come see what we’ve been presenting.
Dr. Stephanie Huie has been appointed chair of the national advisory committee at NASH that will oversee a project to assess the role of higher education systems in institutional research and how that may change to improve data capacity to measure and improve institutional performance.

UT System has been a leader in accountability and transparency, and now we have taken the next step in our efforts to increase transparency; measure more effectively our productivity, efficiency, and impact; and demonstrate more clearly our accountability.
The Dashboard is a business intelligence system that includes web-based applications for extracting and analyzing institutional data. Its purpose is to provide current data, trends over time, and comparative benchmarking across a variety of metrics in support of better decision- and policy-making.
We are continually adding more data, more metrics, and more levels of drill through. We also add links to additional analysis and related external white papers as they become available.
Examples of data and functionality include:
We wanted to share our journey through this dashboard project, so we are maintaining a blog: UTFacts Online . The blog focuses on what's going on with the project--successes, frustrations, and next steps. What we truly want is to build a community that discusses the issues of data collection, analysis, and presentation. And how that data plays a part in policy decision-making.
It's also a forum to look at data more informally. For example, we've offered sneak peeks on enrollment and graduation rates data. We've looked briefly at some census data. Often the information will be more formally and fully analyzed and presented in official publications, but the blog allows us a place to get it out there more quickly and in smaller, more digestible pieces.
We also have a twitter feed . Come join the conversation!
