Tableau Reports

Tableau is a data visualization tool that is being used to assist the division in creating more dynamic reports for data housed in Student Affairs. Tableau allows users to extract data from Excel spreadsheets, databases and servers to quickly and easily convert the information into graphs. The Project Leader and Student Affairs Graduate Assistants will use this tool to set-up reports and dashboards for departments that can be accessed online.

Student Affairs Reports 

The reports included on this page are built on various data sources such as OrgSync and PeopleSoft Student Groups. Below is a list of the reports. Report descriptions will be forthcoming. If you find that you do not have access to a report it could be because you do not have adequate permissions for that report. Please forward any questions about access to the SA Tech Team (satech@depaul.edu).
