In April the Office of the CFO and campus finance leaders launched the Cal Answers Student Data Super User Program, which will eventually become the Cal Answers Student Data Community of Practice. Super Users will provide the important function of ensuring our campus has a cohesive group of senior-level data analysts with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to help define and analyze the most critical student data issues. Cal Answers Student Data includes information about undergraduate applicants, curriculum, demographics and outcomes, and financial aid.
Super Users were selected by their leadership team because of their data analysis experience, knowledge of their unit’s priorities and processes, and innovative problem solving skills. The group is invite-only at this point; we’ll be opening up the group into the broader campus-wide Community of Practice in Fall 2016.
