Check out the video of my recent interview with Vice President Pamela Brown – Institutional Research and Academic Planning – about the new UC Information Center. She and her team, in partnership with IT, are creating a fascinating, online shop for data about UC. Once you start clicking on the charts and drilling down into the data, you’ll be hooked. You’ll also feel really good about the stories highlighting UC’s great work in fulfilling its mission. Examples:
- On average, UC alumni with bachelor’s degrees experience a doubling of salary between 2 and 10 years after graduation.
- Since 2003, the percent of new undergraduates at UC from underrepresented minority ethnicities has grown from 18 to 27%.
I highlighted the UC Information Center in a recent post. Be sure to test the beta site and send your input to UCInformationCenter@ucop.edu. Not only is it an engaging and data rich site, but it exemplifies the power of a great IT and business partnership. It shows the possibilities are endless.
