  • Share information and analyses with university leadership, including the Board of Regents, president, chancellors and other senior officials
  • Make effective use of national data sources, including the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), the National Center for Educational Statistics, the Common Data Set and the Data Warehouse.
  • Maintain and manage reports, factbook, and information on students, faculty, staff, academic programs, national trends, and peer institutions.
  • Support the University of Nebraska's Strategic Framework process by assisting in development of standards and metrics that measure progress toward goals established by the Board of Regents.
