Directions & Connections: Exploring the UBI Roadmap with UVA Wise

UVA Wise is a 4.5-hour drive from Charlottesville.
Association between University of Virginia and The University of Virginia’s College at Wise began in 1954, and in that time, the College at Wise has experienced campus-wide growth, from the curriculum (up to 30+ majors), infrastructure (new buildings and significant renovations), as well as the enrollment (currently over 2,000 students). This growth period also coincides with building stronger operational – and logistical - ties to UVA, with 285 miles of highway separating the two institutions.

Across the University and its colleges, Discoverer has been the primary reporting system at UVa-Wise. As part of the University-wide financial initiative, the Managerial Reporting Project (MRP) team at UVA developed a dynamic new data reporting environment, known as UBI - or Universal Business Intelligence – to replace Discoverer.

Judy DiVita, Director of MRP, and Matt Douglas, Training Developer on the MRP team, recently embarked on the four-and-a-half hour drive from Charlottesville into the mountains of Southwest Virginia for training UVaWise staff on the UBI reporting tool.

As Discoverer approaches the August 31 sunset for GA, GL, and LD reporting, and the December 31 sunset for SIS reporting, UBI adoption continues increasing across the University.
