Analysts provide data to guide University decision-making

Additions to the Office of Institutional Analysis have positioned it to better provide the University’s leadership with research to guide evidence-based decision-making and strategic planning, says executive director Rosemary Zanutto.

John Dube has promoted from his position as accountability analyst to become the first manager of data and analysis.

“John brings with him vast knowledge and experience from his former roles as manager in Student Awards and Financial Aid and several years experience with the Council of Ontario Universities,” says Zanutto.

Jade Li earned a BSc from the University of Windsor in computer information systems which she uses in her job as institutional analyst – modelling.

Data analyst specialist Brandon Besant came to the University from the City of Windsor, where he automated reporting, performed data modelling, and configured and maintained human resources systems.
