Higher Education Tableau User Group

Join us!

The Higher Education Tableau User Group (HETUG) is organized for and by the higher education #datafam. We meet virtually every month with a primary focus on building community by learning from one another. Your participation in HETUG facilitates cross-institutional pollination by connecting people with resources and tools around the topics of Tableau use, data management, and data literacy in the higher education realm.

We cover topics ranging from beginner tips and tricks, to Tableau Prep and Server/Online, to dashboard design and interactivity. Whether you’re in institutional research, facilities, finance, student success, advancement, academic departments, or just about any facet of a university or college, you’ll learn something in every TUG meeting!

Want to present?

Have a quick tip to share? A longer presentation? Want us to interview you in our Meet a Community Member segment? We want to hear from you!
