Tableau and The UC Tableau User Group


Tableau is the tool of choice for analytics at UCOP and at multiple UC campuses. UCOP IRAP has found it to be a great data exploration tool and created the UC Information Center using Tableau.

UC Tableau User Group (UC TUG)

UC TUG (UC Tableau Users Group) is a group of Tableau users stretching across the University of California system. We meet monthly to discuss product updates, share best practices, present how-tos, and provide critique for reports-in-development and much more. If you're a current user or are just interested in what the product can do, drop in! For more information or an Outlook invitation, contact or
