What We Do

Data is knowledge, and our Data Management crew connects you with it.

Graduate education at the University of Florida spans...

  • Fifteen colleges.
  • Over 250 degree programs.
  • Some 14,000 graduate students.
  • About 6,000 graduating degree recipients a year.

That means the UF Graduate School has a lot of data to process, parse, curate, interpret, and present — and our Data Management crew of programmers and analysts in 104 Grinter Hall tackles that challenge ably and efficiently.

GIMS: Graduate Information Management System

Chief among Data Management's call of duty is upkeep and enhancement of the Graduate Information Management System (GIMS) — a home-grown online interactive tool that works in tandem with UF’s Student Information System (SIS) and UF Human Resources. GIMS empowers graduate administrators and staff across campus to track degree progress, mark student milestones, and manage graduate faculty status among UF professors.

Analytics

Data Management also conducts analytics for the Graduate School — particularly the Ph.D. Program Profiles published on our website, which provide a statistical snapshot of figures for admissions, enrollment, completion, student demographics by country, and student support and job placement.

Research Projects

Data Management is the go-to source for research projects as well. Past research projects on doctoral education include collaboration with the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS), along with more than 50 other top research universities.

Data Requests

Finally, Data Management serves our campus partners by filling data requests. Need figures on UF graduate student or faculty activity? Want us to run a query? Just ask! Email requests to graddata@ufl.edu.
