Departmental Dashboard

Latino/Latin American Studies

The Academic Department Dashboard provides an overview of the performance of UNO academic departments over time. This dashboard--which relies on data visualization--replaces the Academic Department Indicators series which was printed and distributed to UNO academic departments on an annual basis starting in 1980. Dashboards for individual academic department indicators, filterable by year, college and department are available through the Performance INformation Gateway (PING) web site under Academic & Dept. Indicators/Academic Department Indicators (ADI) Dashboards.

Most figures portray trend information for the most recent 10 year period. Tables present data for the most recent 5 years. All figures are clickable; for example, to see the trend only for Lower Division and Upper Division SCH in Figure 1, click on Total and Graduate to hide their trends. See the Notes and Sources section at the end of this profile for information on data sources and time periods.

Completion Rates for Freshmen Cohort Members Declaring a Major in Latino/Latin American Studies

Note: This information is based on the Fall 2005 entering freshman cohort. The cohort was tracked through the fall 2011 semester. The number of fall cohort freshmen declaring a major offered by a department is only a subset of all majors in a department. Most students select a major offered by a department, or a BGS concentration in a related area, subsequent to enrolling as freshmen, or transferring from another university/college.
