Adopted in fall 2017, Academic Performance Solutions (APS) is a tool from EAB that helps academic and financial leaders on campus make data-informed decisions about academic planning and resource allocation. Accessible via a user-friendly web-based interface, APS combines student, financial, and human resources data to generate insightful analytics at the school and department level. In addition, APS’s peer benchmarking feature allows campus decision makers to draw comparisons between UWM and a group of similar institutions from across the country.
