The Student Data Warehouse integrates different data sources and provides standardized business terms and definitions for the data warehouse tables and columns. These business terms and definitions help users understand what data means and assist in creating and explaining reports. Many terms may be defined differently here than have been defined by your department, but these definitions are how the data is defined in the Student Data Warehouse, and should become common across campus. These definitions allow the users to all be in agreement about what the data they are pulling means, and how to analyze it.
