EXPLORE ARIZONA THROUGH DATA.

About Us

University Analytics & Institutional Research (UAIR) is a division of the Office of the CIO and the facilitator of the university's Enterprise Data Warehouse. We empower University of Arizona decision makers to leverage data, information, and analytics in order to inform policies and practices to benefit students and institutions on campus.

We oversee and maintain systems and services that support transactions, operational, and strategic goals of the University of Arizona. Through collaboration with stakeholders and data stewards, we facilitate access to high-quality data sets while developing and refining research questions using responsible practices in business intelligence and data science. We also serve to interpret data and analysis results for appropriate use, facilitate educational opportunities to enhance data literacy on campus, and provide for the accreditation and licensing data needs of the university.

Our staff includes data analysts, scientists, engineers, developers, and customer support specialists dedicated to developing and implementing best practices in data warehousing for the University of Arizona.

Mission, Vision, and Values

Our mission is to provide data that empowers campus decision-makers, informs policy and practice, and tells the Arizona story.

Our vision is to enhance the university's strategic goals through data tools and analytic services built on accuracy, dependability, and system improvements.

Our values are rooted in ethical data practices which recognize the impact and consequences of data and algorithms on policy decisions. We respect the rights of the individuals whose data is housed in our systems. We are intent on protecting privacy and maintaining confidentiality when collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information.
