Overview

With more than 180,000 students and 39,000 faculty and staff, the UW System generates an enormous amount of data and also exchanges data with other in-state institutions, such as the Wisconsin Technical College System, as well as state and federal agencies. The Office of Information Services enables UW System Administration employees to effectively leverage and manage data in their service to the Board of Regents, UW System institutions, students, and the People of Wisconsin.
