The use of Tableau for Duke University (including the School of Medicine and School of Nursing but excluding Duke University Health System) is managed through the governance structure outlined below.

In 2014, the University recognized the growing interest and use of Tableau as a core data visualization tool across the University. As such, management of Duke University’s Tableau installation was placed jointly under:

  • Management of Duke’s Tableau Server instance
