The Data Analysts Group (DAG) is a dynamic and collaborative team within the EHE community, dedicated to the art and science of data analytics. This initiative, launched in Spring 2023, embraces a College-wide, team-based approach to empower data enthusiasts across various EHE departments. DAG comprises dedicated individuals, representing different facets of our community.
Our primary goal is to equip our members with the skills and knowledge required for effective data analysis. Through weekly check-in meetings, we review ongoing projects, chart progress, and overcome challenges. Our training curriculum covers a range of topics, including Graduate Recruitment, Student Records, Enrollment, Microsoft Excel for Data Analysis, and data visualization using Tableau. We foster a learning environment through virtual classrooms and cross-training sessions, preparing our members to tackle recurring tasks with ease.
As the DAG initiative gathers momentum, it allows IR@EHE staff to delegate tasks that members can complete independently. Our group is the embodiment of collaborative data analysis, providing valuable insights that enhance our educational and research endeavors.
