Data Byte: Data-Informed Storytelling

Data Byte, formally Back Pocket Data, is an electronic communication series distributed regularly during the academic year that narratively and visually depicts the impact and outcomes of a program and/or service in a concise manner. This form of data-driven reporting demonstrates a culture of evidence and allows for explicit connections to be made between the work of the division and the institution’s strategic plan, as well as mission and vision.
