The Data Warehouse is a key component of the UA Little Rock Quality Initiative.  The University has a strategic goal of utilizing data on student, recruitment, progress, success, and graduation to make operational decisions about University programs, policies and procedures.  The Data Warehouse is designed to provide data and address key metrics for University decision makers.

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) launched a Decision Support System (DSS) implementation project in fall 2013 to provide support and tools that facilitate a data-informed culture of continuous improvement and demonstrate the university’s academic, economic, and societal impact to the city, state, and region.
