About the Student Activity Hub

undergrad-tableau.GIFThe Student Activity Hub (SAH) combines information about all graduate and undergraduate students into a single repository.

Academic analysts, advisors, and faculty can access the curated data through supported reporting and visualization tools: Tableau and Cognos.  

In the initial phase, the SAH is designed to make institutional and operational reporting easier by providing access to 15 years’ worth of student data featuring retention, graduation rates, enrollments, demographics, class scheduling, and more.

In later phases, real-time learning data fed from the learning management system will allow for analysis, group building, and messaging of students based on a multitude of criteria.


Access to SAH is currently by invitation only and requires pre-approval by the registrar's office, completed FERPA training and completed Privacy 101 Workshop training. Contact the Registrars office for access.

Data is accessed through our supported analytical tools, Cognos and Tableau, after you have been approved and attended SAH onboarding.
