UT System launches data dashboard to continue transparency initiative

As part of its strategic plan, the University of Tennessee System has announced the creation of a “data dashboard” that will build on its commitment to providing greater and easier access to information for UT’s faculty, staff, students and the communities it serves.

The data dashboard provides frequently requested academic-related information about the university, including enrollment, composite ACT scores, weighted grade point averages, degrees awarded, and graduation and retention statistics.

“Providing a dashboard that tracks our student data was the next logical step in our transparency initiative,” said UT Interim President Randy Boyd. “We hope that the new data dashboard site, combined with the already-established transparency site, will send a clear message to our publics that we hear you and are committed to providing information about how our system operates, as well as data on our outcomes.”

Boyd, as part of his transparency initiative, assembled a Transparency Advisory Group last year to review frequently requested information from the general public, media and legislators. Through the work of this group, UT established a central location for most frequently requested information to make it easier to find and access. To access the site, please visit data.tennessee.edu.

The University of Tennessee is a statewide system of higher education with campuses in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Martin and Memphis; the UT Space Institute in Tullahoma; the UT Institute of Agriculture with a presence in every Tennessee county; and the statewide Institute for Public Service. The UT system manages Oak Ridge National Laboratory through its UT-Battelle partnership; enrolls about 50,000 students statewide; produces about 10,000 new graduates every year; and represents more than 387,000 alumni around the world.
