Getting Started

The University currently has a limited number of licenses for Tableau Cloud. In order to ensure these licenses are used effectively, we can only release one to a unit with a demonstrated business need. Our office is available to help develop visualizations and dashboards for administrative use.

Students and faculty may obtain an academic license directly from Tableau.
