2019 – Understanding Complex Higher Education Data Through Visualization

Presentation Summary

The ever changing environment of a higher education institution creates complicated data. This presentation illustrates the use of Tableau to visualize some of these complicated data sets in unique ways. The ideas presented will be underscored with examples from U of M such as: 1. Using a Sankey chart to visualize student movement from enrollment to graduation or staff movement from year to year. 2. Comparing faculty salaries against peers using a box and whiskers or highlighted line charts. 3. Examining admissions trends with nested bars. 4. Comparing faculty and staff counting methods with an interactive cross tab. 5. Providing more granular detail in HR using combination parameters.
