Delta data for decisions

The resources below support the use of data on campus to make informed decisions.

Delta College Dashboard

Delta College houses key performance metrics on a dashboard for quick reference. Visit the dashboard at dashboard.delta.edu.

Data Cookbook

The Data Cookbook tool serves as the official repository of Delta College data definitions and available public reports. Requests for data reports are routed through the Data Cookbook system. It also houses a list of available reports. These reports are known as specifications in the Data Cookbook.

SSRS

SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Service) is the tool that Delta College has chosen to extract data from Colleague and odsDW and reports on day-to-day operational data-based questions. You may view reports that you have access to at reports.delta.edu. Access to reports are restricted to reporting areas based on your role within the college to maintain FERPA compliance.

Transparency

As a publicly funded institution, Delta College is committed to providing information including financial reports to the public. Information for compliance with Sec. 209 in P.A. 60 of 2013, the education omnibus budget bill, which specifies the requirements for community colleges, can be found by visiting the Delta College Transparency page

Dashboards

Dashboards help an organization get the pulse of metrics they consider important for the health of their organization. Delta has developed a base set of metrics we are currently watching, as well as investigating possible other metrics for the future, continually looking to fine tune processes and provide data and information to help drive decisions at the college.
