Staff Award for Innovation – Business Intelligence Dashboards
Stanley Jones, Adrian Wade, Richard Pike
The Executive Dashboard was developed to be used by Dr. Markwood and other executives to measure key performance metrics for enrollment and recruiting. The data can identify trends and executives can make data driven decisions to help increase enrollment at CSU.
The Classroom Demographic Dashboard helps faculty identify student demographic background. This is helpful to faculty so they can tailor their instruction based on this data driven approach to potentially lead to higher retention rates.
The Financial Dashboard was developed with the assistance of the Office of Business and Finance. The dashboard empowers leaders by giving them accurate and clear data about their budgets. This data enables them to make informed budgetary decisions to support the goals of CSU.
