The Research Administration Service Request (RASR) tool is a workflow tool developed by the Office of Research Information Systems to aid processing units in the receiving and processing of all types of transactions including but not limited to Vouchers, Journals, Travel, and Requisitions. In this presentation/demonstration, attendees would learn (1) how a client could use the RASR tool to submit (and later view) a request to a processing unit, (2) how an administrator would review/approve transactions at a pre-audit level, (3) how a processor would take information from RASR and enter the transaction/request in UNC FInance Systems and, (4) how the system communicates to UNC Finance Systems to automatically complete the request notifying the client of process completion. This tool provides increased transparency to clients, a worklist of action items to the processing unit, and valuable metrics to the leadership of the processing unit.

The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA), the Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE), and Information Technology Services (ITS) have collaborated on the development of information-driven resources in an effort to improve the quality of instruction and inclusiveness in the classroom. Using SAS Visual Analytics, IR has created an interactive dashboard for course instructors to access longitudinal information on student demographics and grade distributions for all courses they have taught since 2010. The institutional goals of this resource are to 1) increase faculty awareness about student diversity; 2) provide instructors with information they can use to improve student learning; and 3) to encourage a systematic approach to improving teaching and learning. In this presentation we will discuss the roles of IR, CFE, and ITS on the project, piloting and provisioning the dashboard, and what is coming next for this partnership.
