At this year’s Academic Leadership Retreat, we intend to build on last year’s discussion on the use of data in making collaborative, informed, and transparent decisions about resource allocation. We will explore how different colleges and departments are currently using data to understand and enhance academic operations. We will also discuss opportunities to provide more and better information to academic units in the future.
