Research Administration Data Cube

This course takes a deep dive into Research Administration Data available through the Research Administration Data Cube (RADC) on the BI Portal. We’ll touch on the Research Administration Data landscape, then orient you to the cube, tour its data points, including awards, proposals and expenditures, and work through some examples of the types of questions that can be answered using the RADC. This class will include hands-on exercises and time to work with your research administration data questions. Previous data experience is assumed; participants are expected to be comfortable using Excel and pivot tables and have EDW access prior to attending this course. Please bring a research administration data question relevant for your department.
