Strategic Data Workbook

The Strategic Data Workbook (SDW) project began in the fall of 2015 to support HSU’s Annual Academic Program Review. The project blossomed into a data-deployment strategy that was tested during the 2016-2017 academic year and deployed in fall 2017. Frequent updates and changes should be expected. All updates and changes will be noted by version numbers. 

All faculty and administrators, as well as several staff members, have been granted permission to access an HSU OAA Network folder. This folder contains all of OIE's Strategic Data Workbooks (despite being named Program Review). If you are unsure if you have access, or if you want to request access, contact Michael Le at 707-826-5489 or

The Strategic Data Workbooks are private and located in an encrypted network folder located on a secure server accessed via Single Sign-on from the HSU campus network. While the workbooks were created using Tableau Desktop (paid license), users may download Tableau Reader (free to use) to access the workbooks. The latest version of Tableau Reader has been added to HSU's software installation sites.
