Ravneet Chadha Associate Vice President and Chief Data Officer

University Analytics & Institutional Research (UAIR) is a department of the Office of the CIO and the facilitator of the university's Enterprise Data Warehouse. Through collaboration with campus partners and data stewards, we facilitate access to high-quality data sets while developing and refining research questions using responsible practices in business intelligence and data science. We also serve to interpret data and analysis results for appropriate use, facilitate educational opportunities to enhance data literacy on campus, and provide for the accreditation and licensing data needs of the university. We believe everyone should be empowered to leverage data, information, and analytics in order to inform policies and practices that benefit students and institutions on campus.
