Have you used the Institutional Retention Dashboard yet? It is now available on the Tableau Server created by the UK Analytics Team. If you would like access to UK Tableau Server, please view the information here: http://www.uky.edu/iraa/resources-support.
These data are the “official” numbers as reported to the Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE). Additionally, “preliminary” data based on enrollments in Fall 2014 are included (these numbers are negotiated and finally made official with the CPE by November). With this dashboard, instead of the .pdf files that used to be posted on the Institutional Research site, you can analyze the official data with many different filters and find interesting new data that is important to understanding the success rates for students in your college, program or academic support initiative. Rates are calculated for both retention/graduation at UK and within the students’ initial primary college.
NOTE: All “Retained” columns also include students who have graduated.
For more detailed information about your college’s retention and graduation rates, contact your dean’s office to ask who is your Retention liaison to the UK Retention and Student Success initiative. For more information in general about retention at the University of Kentucky, contact Dr. Bethany Miller, Office for Retention and Student Success, Division of Undergraduate Education.
