Fast Facts

Want to include University wide data and survey results on your website? We've made it easy with Fast Facts!

These "Fast Facts" Widgets can be inserted in the Right Sidebar (on one or multiple webpages) or within any editable content region. This data is edited and maintained by a web author in the Assessment Office so you know the data will always be accurate and up-to-date.

We're adding new Fast Facts quite frequently, so be sure to check back soon. If there's something you think we should build, be sure to let us know.
