SLCC Data & Insights User Group (the DIG)

The DIG is open to anyone who uses data at SLCC. The purpose of the group is to expand our knowledge and align about data, analytics, and statistics across the college.

DIG is currently on a break. While we plan for future sessions, please email Siobhan Harrington if you have a topic you'd like to present or see presented.

Upcoming Meetings

The upcoming meetings will be online and available by signing up for the mailing list.
