The Office of Academic Data Management is renovating!

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


Confused about directory release information?

A recent segment on KOMO news has created some confusion regarding the release of directory information via the UW’s iPhone app.

As always, the UW is in compliance with federal regulations regarding what student information it does and does not release. Students are allowed to designate whether they want to allow a specific set of their information to be made public or not. The iPhone app uses a small subset of that information and releases it only for those students who have designated that they are willing to let the UW release that information.

More information on the Federal Education Right to Privacy Act (FERPA) is available at uw.edu/students/reg/ferpa.html, which also contains links to MyUW, where students can change their FERPA release flag.
