REAL Dashboard

The REAL Data Dashboard tracks student engagement in experiential learning activities, and provides colleges and schools a detailed picture of who is enrolling in these activities. Open to the public, the REAL Data Dashboard's primary goal is to find and address gaps in access to experiential learning by making the invisible visible, bringing to light (often unintentional) institution-wide trends. 

Access: Restricted to authorized VCU eID users. Request access to this dashboard at URL: https://irds.vcu.edu/dpaccessrequest.html
