The Office of Academic Data Management is renovating!

By Matt Saavedra

As part of our ongoing mission to provide the best in useful information to the University, ADM is upgrading our suite of reports. In the past, many of our reports have been printed and distributed on paper. This has been a cumbersome process that has not only slowed our ability to respond to the changing needs of the campus community, but been pretty hard on the trees, too.

So, we’re converting lots of reports from paper to pixels.  Some will stay on the ADM website, others will move to the Enterprise Data Warehouse, still others will be distributed as PDF files via email.  It’s a sizable task and it will take time, but in the end we’ll be able to provide information to the campus much more efficiently.

And while we’re at it, we are modernizing the content, too.  We have a new version of the QuickStats.  We’ve changed some parts and added others.  Take a look:

If you have any feedback, we’d love to hear it: reptreq@uw.edu

    What a great idea! Glad the ADM is going green with these reports. It just makes sense!
