HETUG January 2024: Meet a (Tableau) Prepper, Can I Tableau that? + Forecasting a New Year

Higher Education Tableau User Group

Jan 23, 8:00 – 9:30 PM

Meet Francesca Gilkey (Endicott College) and learn how she uses Tableau Prep; post a Slack question and maybe we'll cover it in our first ever game of "Can I Tableau that?"; and with the new year, hear how Chengbo Yin (Rutgers - Newark) is using last year's enrollment data to forecast the upcoming school year's budget.

Meet a Community Member

Francesca Gilkey (Endicott College)

Currently the Director of Institutional Research at Endicott College, Francesca Gilkey has a decade of experience in Higher Ed at public and private colleges across the Northeast. We can't wait to hear some of how she uses Tableau Prep to clean and build data sources!

Can I Tableau that?

If you're a newbie or feel like a newbie (don't we all, sometimes!), and have a question about something and aren't sure it can be done in Tableau, Slack us and we'll pull a question to tackle during the meeting!

Enrollment Dashboards for Budget Projections

Chengbo Yin (Rutgers University - Newark)

With a new year, comes a new budget. Chengo Yin from Rutgers - Newark will share how his office is using Fall 2023 enrollment dashboards to help with the Fall 2024 (yes, we're in 2024!) budget projections. 

Wrap-up and Chat

We'll close out the meeting with info about our next HETUG meeting, and then open up breakout rooms to chat! (Chat may extend past 4:30pm Eastern.)
