About Our Data

UAIR provides a comprehensive variety of campus metrics and statistics through several platforms. We also develop and maintain: 

Public Dashboards and Data 

We provide dashboards on basic student, faculty, and staff information for all campus users and the public. The data in the public dashboards is complemented by factsheets and data tables, the Common Data Set (CDS), and institutional resources. 

Flagship Analytics

This is UMass Amherst’s analytics platform to augment decision making at the university. The platform includes validated and/or official data extracts/models used for analysis, data integration and Tableau data dashboards. 

Any faculty or staff member can access a core set of dashboards via analytics.umass.edu and using their NetID and login (off-campus use requires VPN). 

With FERPA certification and additional training, faculty and staff can access an extensive suite of dashboards that includes information such as student enrollment and success metrics, basic faculty and staff data, and research and grant information.

Adding new data sources and developing new dashboards is an essential and ongoing activity for the UAIR team. We also develop custom dashboards or provide datasets and analyses in response to information and analysis requests.

Data access follows the UMass data security and privacy policies and uses the data steward model.

Amherst Data Pond

In collaboration with our IT colleagues, we support the Amherst Data Pond which is a Tableau site for local dashboard sandboxing, system development and maturation, and locally-collected/unofficial data sharing within the university.
