Statistics can help you tell your story in exciting ways—especially when they are showcased in a bold design and deployed by widgets. The Office of Communications collaborates with Institutional Research and others to build and maintain statistics profiles, such as the ones below, for general use.
We invite you to browse. Communications keeps the content of these statistics profiles updated with the latest data, so you can feel confident that any you choose for your page will always have the most recent information. Statistics can be added to your page with or without an image. Once you’ve identified your favorites, contact Caitlin Peel for assistance in adding them to your page.
Note: Bookmark this page and visit frequently. We add new general-use statistics profiles as opportunities arise.
