Data Management

This unit consists of the Associate Director of Research Programs and Services and the team of three technical staff, including: one statistical analyst, one application developer analyst 3, and one application developer analyst 2. The Data Management team maintains and enhances the UF-designed Graduate Information Management System (GIMS), a storehouse for graduate data since 2004. GIMS provides a tool for graduate students and their academic units to upload and track information such as admissions, committee members, candidacy, theses and dissertations, graduation applications, and all important milestones.

In recent years, GIMS has provided a substantial foundation of reliable and valid information about our programs allowing the publication of standardized profiles of all PhD programs and “dashboard” style summaries of key information sought by applicants. The Graduate School is now positioned to extend the effective use of reports and analysis for increasing enrollment, retention, and graduation rates. This system serves to inform the development of enhanced graduate programs and provide colleges and departments valuable information regarding their graduate programs.
