Purdue University Key Metric Data Dictionary

The Key Metric Data Dictionary serves as the authoritative source for common data definitions. The dictionary was built with input from many individuals across campus including the faculty, human resources, development, budget and fiscal planning, registrar's office, enrollment management, regional campuses, institutional research, data stewards, and the business intelligence community. A governance committee will meet quarterly to review, modify, and add definitions as needed. The governance committee is listed below, if you feel their are elements that need to be adjusted in the dictionary please contact the representative member of the committee.
