rpk GROUP (rpk) has provided multiple stakeholder groups with an overview of the project’s objectives and processes. Specifically, rpk has met or will meet with the Chancellor’s Council, the Provost’s Council, Academic Council, the Faculty Senate Executive Committee, Associate and Assistant Deans, Department Heads/Chairs/Directors, Graduate Council, Undergraduate Studies Council, Data Stewards, and Data Trustees.

These meetings have allowed for open discussions about the project and the roles that individuals and groups can and will have in ensuring the long-term sustainability of the work.

The rpk team will continue to meet with these groups to provide project updates and solicit feedback throughout the semester. In addition to constituency group meetings, rpk received an introduction to UNCG’s current utilization of academic data dashboards.

A UNCG/rpk Data Team has been established. This group will be responsible for supporting development of the approach and methodology related to the academic data informing the new dashboard development. It is anticipated that this group will meet biweekly for the first few months of the project. Various members may meet more frequently with rpk as needed to support data collection and knowledge transfer. 

The members of the Data Team are:

  • Ghazala Bibi, Assistant Controller for Financial Reporting
  • Diane Borders, Professor, Counseling and Educational Development
  • Suzanne Dellinger, Lead Business Intelligence, Projects, and Reporting
  • Tami Draves, Professor, Music Education
  • Sean Farrell, HRIS Manager
  • Anne Fletcher, Professor, Human Development and Family Studies
