KNOXVILLE – 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, UT Interim President Randy Boyd said. “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 a year ago 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.
